Strength of concrete is specified by its direct compressive stress which a concrete cube of size 15 cm x 15 cm x 15 cm can sustain after a submerged curing of 28 days and is designated in short form as ——-M20, M25, M30——- and so on.

Get Price11/09/2020 The tensile strength of concrete is its capacity to resist cracking or breaking under tension. Although concrete is rarely loaded under pure pressure in a structure, determining the tensile strength is necessary to understand the extent of the possible damage. Breaking and cracking arise when tensile forces surpass the tensile strength.
