The purpose of this study is to suggest the non-destructive equation for the estimation of concrete strength by ultrasonic pulse velocity at the Age of 28day compressive strength of $600{\sim}1000kg/cm^2$. For this purpose, selected test variables were water-hinder ratio, replacement ratio of silica fume, binder content, maximum size of coarse aggregate and sand-aggregate ratio. From the results, the average increase or decrease of ultrasonic pulse velocity is 61m/sec for each 1% of moisture content. And the correlation equation between the ultrasonic pulse velocity and the compressive strength of concrete is as follows. $F_c=896.3V_p-3514$ ($R^2$ = 0.81) where, $F_c$ : compressive strength($kgf/cm^2$), $V_p$ : ultrasonic velocity(km/sec).
