Subgrades & Subbases for Concrete Slabs

2018-7-31 · Concrete strength also comes into play, but most slab concrete is around 3000 to 4000 psi, so it''s not a major factor. The tensile strength of concrete is typically taken as 10 to 15% of the compressive strength, so only about 400 or 500 psi. Compare that to the tensile strength of Grade 60 rebar, which is 60,000 psi.
