STRENGTH MEASUREMENT OF CONCRETE USING DIFFERENT CYLINDER SIZES: A STATISTICAL ANALYSIS

Comparisons of the strength of concrete from different sizes and types of cylinder mold yield conflicting results. The author reviewed the literature to determine the relationship between strength of 150-mm (6 in) diameter cylinders and smaller 100-mm (4 in) and 75-mm (3 in) diameter cylinders. The precision of measurement of strength when smaller cylinders are used was examined as well. Nearly 8,000 cylinder strengths ranging from less than 20 MPa to greater than 100 MPa were analyzed; the results are discussed in detail.
