Spanish and European Codes on Structural Concrete (Spanish Code on Structural Concrete, EHE, and Eurocode 2, EC2, respectively) allow measuring the concrete compressive strength with cubic specimens, normally 150 mmedged cubes, instead of the standard cylinders, which are 150 mm in diameter and 300 mm in height.
Prior to performing compressive strength tests on cylindrical concrete specimens, it's important to understand both of the most popular options for preparing the cylinder ends. Proper end preparation ensures that the ends of concrete test cylinders or cores have smooth, parallel bearing surfaces perpendicular to the applied axial load to assure uniform distribution of forces during testing.
Compression Test of the Concrete Specimen is most widely used test to measure its compressive strength. Two types of concrete specimen: Cubes Cylinders are used for this purpose: Cubes of size 150mm are more common in Asia, Russia European countries while Cylinders of 150mm in diameter 300mm high are common in and Australia.
reinforced steel bars imbedded in concrete .A total of 72 cubes were cast to determine compressive strength and 24 cylinder to determine the indirect tensile strength. Bond strength between reinforcing bars and concrete was determined by pullout test on 24 concrete blocks. Corrosion rate was studied and the results are presented.
The compressive strength of the concrete cylinder is one of the most common performance measures performed by the engineers in the structural design. Here, the compressive strength of concrete cylinders is determined by applying continuous load over the cylinder until failure occurs. The test is conducted on a compressiontesting machine.
the compressive stress is approximately 40 percent of the measured compressive strength (𝑓𝑓 𝑐𝑐). Record each cycle and the corresponding loaddeformation measurements. Data can be recorded by hand or exported from the test machine. Detailed instructions for operating the FX250T and FX500 test machines are provided in Appendices
The characteristic compressive cube strength f ck,cube is the second value in the concrete class designation, 37 MPa for C30/37 concrete. The value corresponds to the characteristic (5% fractile) cube strength according to EN 2061.
In general, the results indicate that as the flow increases, attributable to water content increases, the compressive strength decreases. Average test results indicate that the cylinder compressive strength is approximately 73% and 65% of the cube compressive strength for Type S .
The compressive strength of cement concrete obtained after 28 days of moist curing is used in the quality control of constructions. However, for economical quality control, for reworking before the concrete gets hardened and for reducing the waiting time, finding the 28day compressive strength at an earlier time with a reasonable accuracy is ...
The prismoidal compressive strength of concrete has been found to decrease with the increase in the ratio of height 'h' to lateral dimension 'd' till it reaches a value of 4 (h/d=4), beyond which it approximately remains constant equal to times the strength of .
For concrete with a compressive strength of 3000 psi, the corresponding calculated tensile strengths using these four approximations are 300, 367, 219 and 478 psi, respectively. The type of coarse aggregate in the concrete also significantly affects the compressive/tensile strength relationship.
For that we have to make the concrete Cube which size should be 150 mm x 150 mm . The concrete cube Should be fully vibrated and fully curing. Than we are able to find out the compressive strength of concrete in compression machine. Below List for the compressive strength of concrete.
For compressive strength and flexural strength tests two cubes of 100 mm and prismatic of 100 x 100 x 500 mm specimens complying with BS 1881: Part 116: 1983  and BS 1881: Part 118: 1983 , respectively, were used for every mix. The bobbinshaped specimens as developed earlier by Brooks et al  were adopted for testing of direct tensile
• Theresults of this study confirmed that the strength ratio (150mm dia. cylinder vs. 100 mm cube) for local concrete is similarto that of Eurocode. The difference is about 2%. • Asthis study is based on limited samples (119 cylinders and 119cubes), it is proposed that the Eurocode relationship

The compressive strength of concrete is about 4000 psi. Definition. Strength of hardened concrete measured by the compression test. The compression strength of concrete is a measure of the concrete's ability to resist loads which tend to compress it.
