As stated in ACI 5221-13, the tolerance for the specified void content is +/-5% The pervious concrete mix , Do not specify compressive strength as acceptance criteria Do not specify a minimum cement content or water-to-cement ratio Do specify target range for void content Do specify acceptance of concrete based on its density relative to .
According to section 19213 of ACI 318-14 the specified compressive strength shall be based on the 28-day test results unless otherwise specified in the construction documents 3- or 7-day test results are used to monitor early strength gain, especially when high early-strength concrete is used
(A) Compressive strength The concrete shall be deemed to comply with the strength requirement when both the following conditions are met: a) The mean strength determined from any group of four non-overlapping consecutive test results, complies with the appropriate limits col 2 of Table 2

The remaining sections are devoted to architectural concrete, lightweight concrete, mass concrete, aci 301-10 pdf concrete, shrinkage-compensating concrete, industrial floor slabs, tilt-up construction, precast structural concrete, and precast architectural concrete
As stated in ACI 5221-13: Specification for Pervious Concrete Pavement, the tolerance for the specified void content is +/-5% Flexural Strength Flexural strength in pervious concretes generally ranges between about 150 psi (1 MPa) and 550 psi (38 MPa)
51 Care must be exercised in the interpretation of the significance of compressive strength determinations by this test method since strength is not a fundamental or intrinsic property of concrete made from given materials Values obtained will depend on the size and shape of the specimen, batching, mixing procedures, the methods of sampling, molding, and fabrication and the age, ,

These are all examples of incorrect interpretations of the acceptance criteria for concrete strength test results in accordance with ACI 318 “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete .
Compressive strength is widely used as an acceptance test for concrete Specifications for concrete paving typically require compressive strengths between 3000 and 4000 psi at 28 days
FSEL PROCEDURE FOR COMPRESSION TESTING OF CONCRETE CYLINDERS A ND CORES Rev 0 1 1 PROCEDURE OVERVIEW This procedure is to be used for determining the compressive strength of concrete cylinders and cores
Note that the ACI 318 Standard (Section 19211) indicates a minimum specified compressive strength of 2500 psi for structural concrete Simply stated, no structural concrete can be specified with a

This latter option actually is required by ACI 318, ACI 301, and ASTM C94 in the two fundamental criteria for acceptance of concrete on the basis of compressive strength To quote ACI 301-10, “The strength of concrete is satisfactory provided that the criteria of 1661a and 1661b are met 1661a: .
