strength is measured by breaking cylindrical concrete specimens in a compression-testing machine. Compressive strength is calculated from the failure load divided by the cross-sectional area resisting the load and reported in units of pound-force per square inch psi or megapascals MPa. Concrete compressive strength can vary from 2500 psi 17
CUBES. Concrete cylinder and cube specimens for compression testing were compared through a survey of past research, including testing procedures, factors affecting the cylindercube strength ratio, and conversion factors and equations. The main difference between cylinder and cube testing procedures is capping.
