Get Price### The Strength of Chapter Concrete 3

· Strength is usually the basis for acceptance or rejection of the concrete in the structure. The specifica-tions or code designate the strength (nearly always compressive) required of the concrete in the severalparts of the structure. In those cases in which strength specimens fail to reach the required value fur-ther testing of the concrete in place is usually specified. This may involve drilling cores from the struc-ture or testing with certain nondestructive instruments that measure the hardness of the concrete.Some specifications permit a small amount of noncompliance provided it is not serious and may penal-ize the contractor by deducting from the payments due for the faulty concrete. Statistical methods nowapplied to the evaluation of tests as described in Chapter 26 lend a more realistic approach to the anal-ysis of test results enabling the engineer to recognize the normal variations in strength and to evaluateindividual tests in their true perspective as they fit into the entire series of tests on the structure.Strength is necessary when computing a proposed mix for concrete
