But sometimes the strength test results vary so widely that it becomes difficult […]

### Long

Limited data are available on the relationship between the strengths of test cylinders and cores taken from in-place high-strength concrete. Because high-strength concrete structures may be heavily reinforced, it can be difficult to obtain cores with the same aspect ratio (core length divided by core diameter) as cylinders. The relationship between aspect ratio and compressive strength for ...
