The strength of concrete generally represents the compressive strength of concrete, as concrete has maximum compressive strength and is its unique feature. Therefore, in concrete the characteristic strength of concrete literally means Characteristic compressive strength unlike in other materials like steel or wood, etc. so most of the design of the concrete structure is done by adopting the

### Compressive Strength of Concrete -Cube Test, Procedure

Concrete compressive strength for general construction varies from 15 MPa (2200 psi) to 30 MPa (4400 psi) and higher in commercial and industrial structures. Compressive strength of concrete depends on many factors such as water-cement ratio, cement strength, quality of concrete material, quality control during the production of concrete, etc.

### ASTM Standard Test Method C39: Compressive Strength of

04/04/2021 Concrete's compressive strength determines whether the concrete placed in a structure can bear the weight of what's on top of it, or if it will splinter into a million pieces and cause the structure to collapse. It is highly important for engineers to know how strong concrete is, and so construction materials testing companies send their field technicians to various construction sites to make
