### 10.107 – CONCRETE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

HPC, with strength representing a parameter of performance. The exact point at which normal strength concrete ends and high strength begins is debatable and varies from one global region to another. There is some agreement that concrete with design compressive strengths at 28 days over 50 Mpa, or over 7000 psi is regarded as high strength concrete.

### Compressive Strength of Concrete | Definition, Importance ...

Definition. The compressive strength of concrete can be calculated by the failure load divided with the cross sectional area resisting the load and reported in pounds per square inch in US customary units and mega pascals (MPa) in SI units. Concrete''s compressive strength requirements can vary from 2500 psi...
