  • How to Calculate a Concrete Pad Load Sciencing

    Knowing a concrete pad's thickness or depth is vital if you need to determine the load it can withstand. If the concrete pad is two-inches thick and the concrete manufacturer's stated compression strength is based on that thickness, then you can simply multiply the area by the stated psi to determine how much weight the pad can bear.

  • Properties of concrete Wikipedia

    Concrete has relatively high compressive strength (it doesn't crack under weight), but significantly lower tensile strength (it cracks when being pulled). The compressive strength is typically controlled with the ratio of water to cement when forming the concrete, and tensile strength is increased by additives, typically steel, to create reinforced concrete.
