Title: Influence of Concrete Strength on in Situ Properties of Large Columns
Author(s): Buquan Miao, Pierre-Claude Aitcin, William D. Cook, and Denis Mitchell
Publication: Materials Journal
Appears on pages(s): 214-219

Abstract:The influence of concrete on the measured core compressive and tensile strengths of three large columns was investigated. The lower strength concrete had larger variability in strength than the higher strength concrete. The measured compressive and tensile strengths from the core specimens were found to be between those strengths measured on cylinders cured in air and those cured in water. The permeability was found to decrease significantly with the increased matrix densities of the higher strength concrete.
