Title: Re-examination of the Relation Between Splitting Tensile and
Compressive Strength of Normal Weight Concrete
Author(s): Nicholas J. Carino and H. S. Lew
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 214-219
Keywords: age-strength relation; building codes; compressive strength; concretes;regression analysis; safety; shear properties; splitting tensile strength;statistical analysis.
Abstract:Based on statistical analyses of selected data, which included concretes with compressive strengths from 980 psi (6.9 MPa) to 5750 psi (39.7 MPa), it is shown that the commonly assumed square root of compressive strength function is not the most appropriate relation for selected data or data with a similar precision and the same range; rather, a simple power function is more applicable over a wide range of concrete strengths.
