WTF, does thickness even effect the strength of a material ...

But where does thickness factor in??? I mean, a 1" thick piece of plywood can't have the same compressive strength as a 50" piece of plywood right? Background: I'm trying to select a material that will go in the base of a storage system (therefore it should be able to withstand loading).

What is Ultrasonic Testing of Concrete for Compressive ...

Ultrasonic Testing of Concrete. Ultrasonic pulse velocity test consists of measuring travel time, T of ultrasonic pulse of 50 to 54 kHz, produced by an electro-acoustical transducer, held in contact with one surface of the concrete member under test and receiving the same by a similar transducer in contact with the surface at the other end.

How Thick Does Concrete Need to Be to Hold Up Weight? | Hunker

Jul 17, 2017· Concrete has inherent compressive strength -- resistance to forces pushing on it. Concrete mixes are designed to a specified compressive strength, expressed as pounds per square inch (psi). Concrete for works, such as driveways or floors, is typically in the range of 1,800 psi to 4,000 psi for compressive strength.

Effect of Concrete Strength and Slab Thickness on Floor ...

Most designers calculate the required thickness of a floor based on the flexural strength of the concrete. Flexural strength is estimated by the modulus of rupture, which is assumed to vary with the square root of the compressive strength. In the equation that relates design slab thickness and modulus of rupture, the thickness term is squared.

In 1892, Feret was the first to propose a model for predicting concrete compressive strength by postulating that strength is a function of the ratio of cement to paste and air (Feret, 1892) as shown in Equation 1.Experimental data revealed poor agreement with this ratio (Popovics, 1985).In 1919 Abrams proposed using the ratio water to cement, as given in Equation 2, as it was simpler and found ...

Assessment of compressive strength of concrete by cylinders, cores, and non destructive tests. When the strength of in situ concrete is in doubt due to low test results of cast "standard" specimens, or due to deterioration, most of the codes permit assessment of concrete quality by testing compressive or indirect tensile strength of cores drilled from relevant parts of a structure.
