Re: Cylinder Breaks vs. Mix Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi!

I do not fell that good cylinder break results are sufficient to vet concrete design. Durability requirement of concrete is not confirmed by cylinder break results. Type of cement used, minimum cement content, w/c ratio, requirement of admixtures, chloride contents in aggregates also need assessment.
