Title:Effect of length of specimen on apparent compressive strength of concrete
Author(s):Murdock, John W.; Kesler, Clyde E.
Compression Strength
Testing Materials
Abstract:There are many complications in determining the compressive strength of concrete. For this reason the American Society for Testing Materials has established several standard methods to be used to determine compressive strength. One factor that affects the compressive strength is the ratio of the length of the specimen to its diameter, commonly referred to as the ℓ/d ratios ... It will be the purpose of this paper to summarize previous investigations which indicate that the value of the correction factor depends on influences other than the ℓ/d ratio.
