Hardening (or) strength of this material is obtained by the chemical action between water and cement. As the time increases the stronger it grows (i.e strength of concrete is directly proportion to its age).The durability, strength, versatility and other characteristics of concrete depends upon the properties and proportion of the gradients in the mix. Strength of concrete is its resistance to rupture on application of load. It is measured by testing the samples for their compression, tension, shear and flexural strength. All these properties shows the strength…
