Compressive strength testing involves determining the seven-day and/or 28-day compressive strength of the hardened mixture.
Compressive strength increased more than Flexural strength when compared with conventional concrete.
Hence, this paper investigated the early-age performance of cement combination concretes containing fly ash, silica fume, and metakaolin by considering their heat of hydration and compressive strength with a view to ascertaining their suitability for concrete works at early ages.
To solve this problem, normative empirical approaches have emerged which estimate Ec based on the rates of the concrete's compressive strength.
Additionally, different empirical correlations should be used to predict Young's modulus, Poisson's ratio, and compressive strength.
Compressive strength is the most important property of hardened concrete; other properties such as tensile strength, flexural strength, elasticity modulus, water tightness, and durability all are related to compressive strength closely.
Unit weight, compressive strength and water absorption test were carried out over the samples.
