# Mean value of concrete compressive strength at an age of t days, fcm(t)

## Eurocode 2 part 1-1: Design of concrete structures \$(document).ready(function () { var freeExample = \$("#freeExample").length; \$("#mainMenu li#nav-appCate, #mainMenu li#nav-appEC211").addClass("active"); var proUser = false === true || false === true || freeExample !== 0; if (!proUser) { \$('#Input input').keyup(function(){ \$('#AlertSubscribe').modal(); }); \$('#Input select').change(function(){ \$('#AlertSubscribe').modal(); }); }; var tempInput = \$("#tempInput").text(); if (tempInput != "") { \$("#Input").parent("form").deserialize(tempInput); if (proUser) { \$("#acceptBtn").trigger("click"); } }; });  3.1.2 (6)

The compressive strength of concrete at various ages, fcm(t), may be estimated as follows:

 fcm(t) = βcc(t)⋅fcm (3.1)

where:

fcm
is the mean compressive strength at 28 days, see Table 3.1
βcc(t)
is a coefficient which depends on the age of the concrete t:
 βcc(t) = exp { s [1 - (28/t)1/2] } (3.2)

with

t
the age of the concrete
s
a coefficient which depends on the type of cement:
= 0,20 for CEM 42,5 R, CEM 52,5 N and CEM 52,5 R (Class R)
= 0,25 for CEM 32,5 R and CEM 42,5 N (Class N)
= 0,38 for CEM 32,5 N (Class S).

This application calculates the mean compressive strength fcm(t) from your inputs. Intermediate results will also be given.
