OBJECTIVE
The purpose of this lab is to test the changes in concrete over time, to visualize the growth in strength as
concrete cures. Cylinders that were cured for 7, 14, 21, and 28 days will be tested under compression
until failure and will be assessed
Objective
The purpose of this lab is to analyze concretes strength to failure when
subjected to a compressive load over twentyeight days. Four concrete
cylinders will be made then cured and will be tested on 7day
increments in accordance with ASTM stand
