Increasing Concrete Strength

Compressive strength

Compressive strength is the most common performance metric for concreteThe compressive strength of concrete can be increased by:   
  • Including admixtures
  • Adjusting the cement type and quantity
  • Reducing the water/cement ratio
  • Utilizing supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs)
  • Altering the aggregates - type and gradations
Additionally, high-early strength concrete can be achieved through a 4x4 Concrete System.
