## How to perform concrete cube test in universal testing machine to determine the compressive strength?

Compressive strength of concrete: It is nothing but the loads it can carry on its surface without any crack or failure. So here the compressive strength of the concrete is being applied at the point of failure. We do concrete cube test to determine the compressive strength of concrete. Concrete has more compressive strength than […]
