Evaluation of Factors Affecting High-Strength Concrete Cores

by Tarun R. Naik, Univ of Wisconsin, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Serviceability and Durability of Construction Materials


A number of factors are discussed to explain different effects they have on core strength. These factors should be considered when evaluating cores tested to determine 'true' in-situ compressive strength. Subjects covered include nondestructive testing, factors affecting cylinder strength, test specimen dimensional effects, lightweight concrete, wall concrete cores, and others.

Subject Headings: Lightweight concrete | Strength of materials | High-strength concrete | Compressive strength | Walls | Material tests | Mechanical properties | Concrete construction
