Let the characteristic strength be defined as that value, below which not more than 50% of the results are expected to fall. Assuming a standard deviation of 4 MPa, the target mean strength (in MPa) to be considered in the mix design of a M25 concrete would be

Detailed Solution for Practice Test: Gate Civil Engineering(CE) 2017 Paper - Question 30

The correct expression as per IS 456: 2000 to find Target mean strength is:

fcm = fck + (k × σ)

fcm = Target mean strength

fck = Characteristic strength

σ = Standard deviation

For not more than 50% of results are likely to fall k = 0.
Since characteristic strength has been defined as the value below which not more than 50% of results are likely to fall.

Hence,

Target mean strength = ft = fck + (0× σ) = Characteristic strength (fck) = 25 N/mm2
