• The final breaking or crushing takes place at a stress level lesser than the maximum/ultimate stress, which is called the breaking stress. • This value is approximately 15% lesser than the ultimate strength. • The strain at which crushing of concrete takes place is 0.0025 for high-strength concretes to

#### PREDICTION OF CONCRETE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH …

engineering properties. Designing a concrete structure requires the concrete compressive strength to be used. Characteristic strength of the concrete is designated as the compressive strength of a concrete sample that has been cured for 28 days and is determined by the standard cylinder crushing test.

#### Aggregates for Concrete

Hydraulic cement concrete is a cement and water paste in which aggregate particles are embedded. Aggregate is granular material such as sand, gravel, crushed stone, blast-furnace slag, and lightweight aggregates that usually occupies approxi-mately 60 to 75% of the volume of concrete. Aggregate properties significantly affect the workability of ...
