The variation of compressive strength of the blocks with the quantity of additive has been plotted in Fig.4. It is observed that the compressive strength of the blocks varies in a non-linear pattern with the quantity of additive. Initially the compressive strength increases until a peak value is attained and decreases thereafter.
Concrete compressive strength can vary from 2500 psi 17 MPa for residential concrete to 4000 psi 28 MPa and higher in commercial structures. Some applications use higher strengths, greater than 10,000 psi 70 MPa.
