The factors determining the reliability of the correlations between concrete properties have been investigated. It is assumed that the existence of some resemblance between these properties may affect the strength of the correlations and it is found that the closeness of the sensitivity degrees of the properties to the pore structure of cement paste is the most important factor. Taking into consideration the closeness of dependences of the properties on compositional factors as well as the closeness of their sensitivity degrees, it has been found that it is possible to explain the reliability of the correlations between them with a great degree of confidence.
