The spread of strength results of samples taken from nominally the same concretes is assumed to approximate to the normal distribution curve.

contact usCompressive strength is the standard strength parameter of concrete that can be evaluated under site conditions as well. The most common method is to use cylinder cores drilled off the structure. Momber (1998b) was probably the first to suggest to use the way how a cylinder fails during the compression test as a criterion of the material behaviour during hydrodemolition.

This requires engineers to build small concrete cylinders with different combinations of raw materials and test these cylinders for strength variations with a change in each raw material.

contact usCompressive Or Crushing Strength Compression across the grain is very closely related to hardness and transverse shear. There are two ways in which wood is subjected to stress of this kind, namely, (1) with the load acting over the entire area of the specimen, and (2) with a load concentrated over a portion of the area.
