Abstract:
The compressive strength of laboratory cured and field cured cylinders are compared with 4 and 6 in. diameter cores at ages up to 84 days. Nearly 500 samples of natural and lightweight concrete under simulated job conditions showed that all cores at comparable ages tested lower than cylinders.
