Statistics Applied to the Analysis of Test Data from Low-Strength Concrete Cores

Since the mid 1950s, the Hong Kong Government has housed some 2.8 m people in approximately 1500 high-rise reinforced concrete buildings. Since the early 1980s the Government’s Housing Department has faced growing maintenance problems related in part to the low concrete strength encountered in some older blocks. R.A.M. Watkins and D.P. McNicholl
