Presents a method for estimating the 28-day strength of concrete from earlier strengths. Using a simple basic formula, its coefficient is adjusted by apply-ing the method of least squares to a small number of data obtained from the mix under consideration. The method is noteworthy because it demonstrates that: only limited data are required for estimating purposes; earlier strengths in weighted combination can be used to estimate 28-dav strenqth with in- creased accuracy; the formula ‘can be computed accurately with a IO-in. slide rule; and, because it presents a criterion for judging accuracy of estimates.
