Calculation of concrete solution


Grade or class is the main indicator of concrete mix quality that is usually the focus of attention for those purchasing concrete. The other indicators, such as: Frost resistance, mobility, waterproofing capacity are second important topics here. Initially, however, the choice is made in favour of the grade or class.  Generally, the concrete strength is rather variable feature that gains throughout the whole curing process. 

For example: Concrete strength gained in three days and in a week will be different (up to 70% of the projected strength, under suitable weather conditions). In a standard period, 28 days of normal curing, the projected (calculated) strength is generated. And in six months it gets even higher. Basically, concrete curing and the process of gaining strength go on for many years.
