The following Table gives the compressive strengths (based on cylinders and cubes), modulus of elasticity and tensile strength for various strength classes of normal weight concrete. They are taken from Table 3.1 of the Eurocode 2, which gives additional properties as well as values for other strength classes. It should be notes that these are characteristic values and should be modified as appropriate for design purposes.
|Cylinder strength (MPa)||20||25||30||35||40||45||50|
|Cube strength (MPa)||25||30||37||45||50||55||60|
|Modulus of elasticity (GPa)||30||31||32||34||35||36||37|
|Tensile strength (MPa)||2.2||2.6||2.9||3.2||3.5||3.8||4.1|
