HIGH-STRENGTH CONCRETE PROPERTIES DERIVED FROM COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH VALUES

The determinations of modulus of elasticity and flexural and splitting tensile strengths frequently require complicated testing procedures compared to compressive strength testing. These properties can be predicted using existing relationships between them and compressive strength values. However, most of the present correlations have been derived for mixtures with compressive strengths less than 80 MPa and may not be applicable to mixtures of greater strengths. This paper compares compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, flexural strength, and modulus of elasticity values to similar results estimated by national codes and alternatives introduced by various researchers. Commercial as well as laboratory-prepared concrete mixtures with 28-d compressive strengths of 45 to 110 MPa were tested.
