Keywords: compressive strength; construction; reinforced concrete; tests; tolerances (mechanics) Date: 7/1/1999. Abstract: Two approaches to the tolerance limit for compressive strength of concrete in reinforced members are compared. One tolerance limit for strength, in use since 1971, is f c- 500 psi (3.4 MPa).

The acceptance criteria for concrete strength tests has been the same since the early 1970’s but for more than 40 years they have often been interpreted incorrectly.

5.1 Care must be exercised in the interpretation of the significance of compressive strength determinations by this test method since strength is not a fundamental or intrinsic property of concrete made from given materials.

The strength of concrete in a structure and the strength of test cylinders cast from a sample of that concrete are not necessarily the same. The strength of the cylinders obtained from that sample of concrete and used for contractual acceptance are to be cured and tested under tightly controlled conditions.

The curve in which compressive strength is plotted against age is generally of the form shown in the figure. As can be seen, enough strength has usually been attained by age 7 days to give some indication of whether the concrete is gaining strength at a satisfactory rate; so 7 days is a useful age at which to test.

Some specifications allow a 1% reduction in air content when compressive strengths are greater than 5000 psi, because higher-strength concretes have greater frost resistance.ACI 332,"Guide to Residential Cast-in-Place Concrete Construction," suggests air contents similar to ACI 318.

The curve in which compressive strength is plotted against age is generally of the form shown in the figure. As can be seen, enough strength has usually been attained by age 7 days to give some indication of whether the concrete is gaining strength at a satisfactory rate; so 7 days is a useful age at which to test.
