If cylinder specimen is used to test compressive strength, equivalent cubes strength can be found using:

A. 3/4^th strength of cylinder

B. 5/4^th strength of cylinder

C. 5/6^th strength of cylinder

D. 1/4^th strength of cylinder

I had been asked this question in an internship interview.

I’m obligated to ask this question of Tests on Concrete topic in portion Building Construction of Basic Civil Engineering

Correct option is B. 5/4^th strength of cylinder

For explanation: This formula is recommended by IS codes. IS 516 gives the details.
