### Increase in strength of concrete with age – we civil engineers

Jan 27, 2018· Concrete develops strength with continued hydration. Rate of gain of strength is faster to start with and rate get reduced with age. It is customary to assume the 28 days strength as full strength of concrete. But actually, concrete develops strength beyond 28 days also. Percentage strength of concrete at various ages The strength of.

### Cube Test to Check the Compressive Strength of Concrete

As an example, if the grade of concrete is M25 than the compressive strength of concrete after 3 days should be 10 N/mm 2, after 7 days strength should be 17 N/mm 2, after 14 days strength should be 23 N/mm 2, after 28 days strength should be 25 N/mm 2.
