Abstract:
In the introduction, the significance of the various concrete strengths, such as compressive, flexural, tensile, shearing, torsion, impact, bond, combined and fatigue strengths, is discussed. The two prinicpal reasons for determining the strength of a bridge concrete are as follows in the rest of the report.
