2.1 Terms
2.1.1 compressive strength of concrete
It is the compressive strength of structural concrete within the testing age that is equivalent to the test cube with side length of 150mm, and it is obtained by using the core specimens;
2.1.2 Estimated strength of concrete
The estimated value of the 0.05 tantile in the distribution of the compressive strength of such structural concrete within the testing age and being equivalent to the test cube with side length of 150mm.
2.1.3 Confidence level
It is the probability that the true value of the tested quantity falls into a certain interval.
2.1.4 Estimate interval
It is the range that the true value of the tested quantity falls at the set confidence level. This range is defined by using the upper limit value and lower limit value that are used for the strength estimation.
2.1.5 Standard core specimen
It is the concrete cylinder specimen of which the drilled core quality meets the requirements, the nominal diameter is 100mm and the height-diameter ratio is 1:1.
2.1.6 Inspection lot
It means a certain quantity of specimens that are produced under the same concrete strength registration, production technology, raw materials, mix proportion, forming technology and curing conditions and are submitted for testing.
2.1.7 Draw an item at random
It means drawing any one individual from the inspection lot randomly and equiprobably.
