Types of concrete - Wikipedia

High-strength concrete. High-strength concrete has a compressive strength greater than 40 MPa (5800 psi). In the UK, BS EN 206-1 defines High strength concrete as concrete with a compressive strength class higher than C50/60. High-strength concrete is made by lowering the water-cement (W/C) ratio to 0.35 or lower.

Compressive strength, tensile strength and modulus of elasticity of concrete were tested at 1, 7 and 28 days of hardening and at a day, when concrete ring was cracking. Cube specimens 100 mm and 150 mm were used for compressive strength, cubes 100 mm for tensile strength, and cylindrical specimens measuring 150×300 mm for modulus of elasticity.
