If you were pouring 3000lb concrete the concrete slab would obtain
about 1500lbs PSI (or about 50% design mix) after 1 day -70% seven days 98%.
This depends on how the curing process was help along.
If nothing was done to help the process the PSI obtained will probaly stop at about 50% or the 1500lb PSI
The good news is that it only takes about 800lb PSI to be structual for your home.
Here I go again JJ
