Quantitative tools for evaluating and improving the strength of concrete<br /> <br /> Concrete is a complex material of vital importance to the civil engineering and construction industries.
SureBroom™ is the premier high-strength thin broom concrete overlay for extremely used trafficked areas. Its formulation is designed to transform old, spalling, broken concrete to a freshly broom surface as well as cracked resurfacing concrete.
Curing plays an important role on strength development and durability of concrete. Curing takes place immediately after concrete placing and finishing, and involves maintenance of desired moisture and temperature conditions, both at depth and near the surface, for extended periods of time.
The American Concrete Institute (ACI) is a leading authority and resource worldwide for the development and distribution of consensus-based standards, technical resources, educational programs, certification programs, and proven expertise for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design, construction, and materials, who share a ...
The deflection and cracking behavior of concrete structure depend on the flexural tensile strength of concrete. Many factors have been shown to influence the flexural tensile strength of concrete, particularly the level of stress, size, age and confinement to concrete flexure member, etc.

PCC is most often known by its compressive strength. This is because PCC is much stronger in compression than it is in tension and thus, is often used in compression. The ACI Concrete Code gives some rough rules-of-thumb for converting compressive strength to tensile and flexural strength:
Concrete, usually Portland cement concrete, is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens over time—most frequently a lime-based cement binder, such as Portland cement, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement.
