The purpose of this study was to determine the effect that bleeding has upon the compressive strength of concrete. Keeping in mind that the compressive strength of a concrete depends highly upon the water, cement ratio, it was reasonable to expect that the changing of the water content of the fresh concrete by bleeding would have a definite effect on the final compressive strength. While tests upon tests and studies upon studies have been made of cement and concrete, few, if any, have been concerned with this problem.
