Modulus of Elasticity according to Eurocode 2

The modulus of elasticity of a concrete is controlled by the moduli of elasticity of its components. Approximate values for the modulus of elasticity Ecm, secant value between σc = 0 and 0,4 fcm, for concretes with quartzite aggregates, are given in Table 2.3. For limestone and sandstone aggregates the value should be reduced by 10% and 30% respectively. For basalt aggregates the value should be increased by 20%. The strength classes in this code are based on the characteristic cylinder strength fck determined at 28 days with a maximum value of Cmax. Eurocode 2-1.1   (§ 3.1.3)
