A concrete block is made of mixing of various ingredients with a specific composition and allowed to cure for a certain number of days. Once it is cured, the compressive strength, a vital characteristic of a concrete block, is determined by subjecting it into destructive testing, using Universal Testing Machine (UTM). The destructive testing is required as the compressive strength is a highly nonlinear function of age and ingredients.
The strength of a concrete block varies with the type of ingredients, its composition, and the number of days it is allowed to cure. Since there are many ingredients involved, and each component has a broad spectrum, it is a tedious process, in terms of time, effort, and cost to compute the strength for each parameter.
