Experiments have been performed on 13 mixtures made up with 5 sources of aggregate, in order to compare the strength development on pure paste vs. composites (mortar and concrete). The quantitative assessment of the three effects of aggregate on compressive strength gives an accuracy close to 2.2 MPa, on the studied mixes.

In normal concrete work, the maximum compressive strength that can possibly be obtained is generally reckoned to be about 7,500 psi for a 28-day cylinder. It would be interesting to know if there is a conceivable maximum limit using materials and techniques available.

Concrete gains strength with time after casting. It takes much time for concrete to gain strength and the time for same is still unknown. The rate of gain of concrete compressive strength in higher during the first 28 days of casting and then it slows down. The table below shows the compressive strength gained by concrete after 1, 3, 7, 14 ...

The most important property of concrete is the compressive strength. Concrete with 28-day compressive strength fc = 3.6 ksi is commonly used in conventionally reinforced concrete structures while concrete with higher strength is used in prestressed concrete structures. The California Amendments (Caltrans, 2014a)

The Estimation of Compressive Strength of Normal and Recycled Aggregate Concrete 423 2.4. Aggregate In concrete technology, the relationship between water-cement ratio and strength is overemphasized. The influence of aggregate on concrete strength is not generally appreci-ated.

Abstract—This paper presents results of compressive strength, capillary water absorption, and density tests conducted on concrete containing recycled aggregate (RCA) which is obtained from structural waste generated by the construction industry in Turkey.

· is an engineered concrete suitable for use in all applications that require the use of pumping equipment for pour in place concrete. It provides an air entrained, rheology modified structural concrete with a minimum 28-day compressive strength of 6000 psi. PC6000 is designed to deliver high early compressive strength.

High-Strength Concrete (HSC) has appeared as a new construction material. This amount of the com-pressive strength provokes that the normalized speci-mens for normal strength concrete, e.g. 150 £300mm cylinder (diameter £ height), may surpass the capac-ity of standard laboratory equipment. To overcome this drawback HSC mixtures are often ...
