Characteristic Strength of Concrete

Characteristic Strength of Concrete


The classification of concrete grades is based on their compressive strength. Each concrete grade e.g. C30/37 is characterized by two equivalent strengths, which in this specific example are 30 MPa and 37 MPa. The first is the characteristic strength fck of a standard concrete cylinder and the latter is the characteristic strength of a standard concrete cube.
