Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens1 This standard is issued under the fixed designation C39/C39M; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval
In order to convert all core specimens to approximately the same strength basis as the standard 6x12-inch test cylinder, a correction factor is applied to the calculated strength This factor, based on the ratio of length to diameter (l/d), has been given as 098 for l/d = 175, 096 for l/d = 150, 093 for l/d = 125 and 087 for l/d = 100
For concrete with a compressive strength of 3000 psi, the corresponding calculated tensile strengths using these four approximations are 300, 367, 219 and 478 psi, respectively The type of coarse aggregate in the concrete also significantly affects the compressive/tensile strength relationship
