Title: Evaluation of Core Strength in High-Strength Concrete
Author(s): Robert YuanN, Mostafa Ragab, Robert E. Hill, and James E. Cook
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 30-34
Keywords: columns (supports); compressive strength; concrete cores; cylinders; high-strength concretes; strength; temperature; tests; Structural Research
Abstract:Investigation correlates core strength and cylinder strength with regard to strength gain in high-strength concrete. The experiment used two large columns and 96 standard cylinders; half were field-cured and half were moist-cured. Effects of placement temperatures and early concrete temperature due to hydration were evaluated. A comparison on the concrete strength gain was made between cores and cylinders.
