In this study, a relationship was determined between the mechanical properties (compressive and splitting tensile strengths) and wear resistance of high strength concretes (HSC) having compressive strength between 65 and 85 MPa. For this purpose, 108 test specimens were produced from six different mixtures. After 28 days standard curing. compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, and wear resistance tests were performed on the specimens. From the test results, mathematical expressions were developed to estimate the wear resistance of concrete regarding their compressive strength and splitting tensile strength. As result a reliable relationship was produced from this properties. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
