The minimum period for curing concrete to attain maximum strength is 28 Days. From the above graph, it is clear that concrete attains 50% of its design strength when it cured for 3-7 Days. 75% of Compressive strength achieved in 14 days and 90% of strength by 28 days as time goes on the strength increase gradually.
