Unformatted text preview: Make no adjustment to rate of movement while the specimen is yielding rapidly immediately before failing Apply load until specimen fails and record maximum load carried Note type of failure and appearance of concrete = Compressive Strength Maximum LoadCross Sectional Area Post-Lab Test Conditions The test conditions for this procedure were normal. Results Average Diameter of Cylinder: 6.0315in Total Load: 116010lb Machine measured compressive strength: 4100psi Calculated compressive strength: 4060psi Comments The procedure was followed as written and everything proceeded normally....
