Dear Friends

Generally we test the concrete cubes of 150mm x 150mm x 150mm for compressive strength. If  we cut a piece from slab or any other member say paving block etc.  the thickness may vary from 150 mm and this would effect the results. Is there any relation between size of cube and compressive strength, as it is in case cubes and cylinders.

Thanks

Daljeet Sidhu

When a practical test is to be conducted for hardened concrete from any mamber, a core is drilled out & tested according to provisions of code to evaluate the strength. That value is further converted to equivalent cube strength & the acceptable limit of acceptance criterial is 85% value of the characteristic design strength of the concrete. I have conducted the cores tests many times. Also the load test can be conducted using cyclic method to ascertain the load carrying capacity of the concret.
