Abstract

Concrete is used in the construction practice as it is easily available, cheap, has flexibility of handling and can be shaped in any form desired. The use of concrete in the construction industry is now being done for a very long time. It is the most used material in the parts of structure where compressive strength is required. So in the construction process evaluation of the compressive strength of concrete plays a vital role. There is no universal method for the evaluation of the compressive strength. In India, the method prescribed by IS 456:2000 is used for checking whether the concrete made is fulfilling the requirement. An attempt is made to analyses this method statistically. The characteristic strength of the concrete is represented by test results of concrete cubes at 28 days. The compressive strength of concrete in India is defined based on this characteristic compressive strength. The sampling process of the concrete which is based on the amount of work of concrete to be done is studied and a trend between the number of samples and the failure percentage of samples in terms of compressive strength is studied. The concept of population and sample in terms of the concrete mix design is studied. Hypothesis testing is performed on various groups of samples and their deviation from the population is calculated. An attempt to calculate optimal number of samples for testing and an improvised method using statistics as a tool for checking the compressive strength of concrete is made.
