The statistical analysis of compressive strength test results is discussed from a specifier’s point of view with emphasis on the risks inherent in the con-sideration of limited data. It is suggested that better assurance is afforded the customer by a quality control type specification than by any scheme confined to consideration of only the data generated from the concrete supplied.
