rated compressive strength
Explanation:
Druckfestigkeit is compressive strength according to my De>En physics dicko. the 'nenn' part makes it 'rated'.

See links for compressive strength of concrete.

rated compression strenght


Explanation:
This is I believe, the proper answer for concrete (Beton).

"Compression strenght" is used here because the value of this physical parameter is a measure of the material's resistance to compression, the material itself being not compressible, it will break apart beyond this compression strenght.

"Compressive strenght" is used for elastic materials i.e. material that are compressible, and this parameter measures also a resistance to compression strenght, but in that case I believe it is specified for the highest "compressive strenght" that will cause a non recoverable deformation i.e. that will compress without damaging.

rated crushing strenght


Explanation:
I was focused on the difference between compression/compressive strenght. However, for concrete, it is most probable that even if compression strengh is not wrong, crushing strenght is more appropriate, because, as I mentionned before, this is a measure of highest strengh that the material can withstand before breaking apart... say... being crushed apart.
Mats has the right answer.

"rated" and "nominal" are equivalent. Both are found in specifications sheets
