Abstract:
Describes a practical method of determining the potential 28-day strength of concrete within 8 hr after mixing. The method is valuable in predicting the effect of changes in mixes, as well as in calling attention to gradual changes in strength due often to otherwise unrecognized conditions and is also helpful in mix design.
