Corr. Compressive strength=14.25x 1.79 = 25.5MPa Comp. strength of cube = 25.5 x 1.25 = 31.9 MPa 7 5. Conclusion the results of the experiment : 1 Compressive strength of the core = 25.5 MPa 2 Compressive strength of the cube = 31.9 MPa. We conclude that the diameter of the cylinder should be at least 3 times the maximum aggregate size and this is true for this experiment. The larger the sample, the more accurate the results would be. To obtain accurate results, the strength value should be multiplied by an age factor and sample size factor in addition to the L\d factor. Since this is not done in this

experiment the results are not highly accurate but could be easily modified to obtain an accurate strength value. The core test is considered the last step for determining the acceptance of the concrete, and the core we tests should have at least strength of 85 % of the concrete strength. The excess void ratio in the core is zero. 6.References https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Core_sample http://www.forconstructionpros.com/article/10927442/concrete-core-testing-best-results 8

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
