Strength of Hardened Concrete  Building Materials ...
The strength of concrete is the measure of its resistance to rupture. Strength of concrete may be measured as strength in tension, strength in compression, in flexural or in shear. All these strengths indie a particular method of testing. When concrete fails under compressive load, the failure is essentially a mixture of crushing .

Compressive strength
The compressive strength of concrete is given in terms of the characteristic compressive strength of 150 mm size cubes tested after 28 days (fck). In field, compressive strength tests are also conducted at interim duration after 7 days to verify the anticipated compressive strength expected after 28 days.
