### Difference Between RCC and Prestressed Concrete

The concrete compressive strength f c and the modulus of elasticity E c were tested according to the Australian Standards AS 1012 9 1999 and AS 1012 17 1997 respectively using a servo hydraulic testing machine with a range of 3000 kN In order to obtain more accurate experimental data the concrete compressive strength and modulus of elasticity were tested on the day of 2013 06 24 nbsp 0183 32 Shotcrete shear strength as suggested 10 MPa 2 Partial Safety Factor 1 5 3 Factor of safety for loads 1 5 therefore permissible shear strength 10 1 5 1 5 4 44 MPaCube or cylinders are made during casting of structural member and after hardening it is cured for 28 days Then compressive strength test is conducted to find the strength Regular grades of concrete are M15 M20 M25 etc For plain cement concrete works generally M15 is used For reinforced concrete construction minimum M20 grade of concrete An acceptable compressive strength for plain concrete quay wall blocks would be 25 MPa at 28 days such as used for the blockwork quay walls in the Port of Ngqura refer Chapter 10 Breakwater armour units however are subject to loads in service that cause flexure and shear in the units and reasonable concrete strengths are necessary Experiments were conducted with a new apparatus previously used to test concrete helical tensile strength that can be used with any universal testing machine Results indicate that concrete anti plane shear strength is higher than direct shear strength measured with notched beams and approximately two times concrete tensile strength The method utilizes concrete
