Compressive strength of Concrete Core specimen IS 516-1959

compressive strength of concrete core

Concrete core Test  standard: IS 516:1959 Compressive Strength Definition: Compressive strength is the ability of material or structure to carry the loads on its surface without any crack or deflection. A material under compression tends to reduce the size, while in tension, size elongates.   Objective:   To determine the compressive strength of concrete cores, …

How to find fresh wet density and Yield of concrete IS 1199-1959

wet density of fresh concrete

Why need to findout fresh wet density and Yield of concrete? Wet density of concrete reflects the ability of concrete to function for structural support, water and solute movement, and durability. This method helps to calculate the yield of concrete per cubic meter. Test apparatus : Weighing balance of accuracy 10gms. Tamping steel bar of …
