Analyzing Uncertainties of Concrete Cylinder Testing

In the future, this may encourage unnecessarily using concrete with higher specified strength to make sure the 28-days results are within the acceptable range, often at a much higher cost. Finally, these curing errors increase the variation between strength results. This sometimes leads to higher chances of having to drill concrete cores from the structure, creating massive delays on the job site as well as
