Data are oresented which show the correlation between flexural strength of concrete beams and tensile splitting strength of concrete cylinders. The concrete mixtures were made with a number of different aggregate types and cements. Cement contents ranged from 4 ‘2 to 7 bags per cu yd of concrete. Comparative cylinders and beam specimens were made from the same concrete batches, and tested after moist curing for 7, 14, 28, and 90 days. The test results indicate that there is a good correlation between the Flexural strength of concrete beams and the tensile splitting strength of concrete cylinders made from the same concrete. Data also are presented which show that the established correlation is suitable for determinina flexural strength of concrete pavements from ting tests of cores drilled from the pavements.
