Title: Tensile Splitting Test and High Strength Concrete Test Cylinders
Author(s): Sven Thaulow
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 699-706
Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:This paper describes an indirect tensile test for determination of tensile splitting strength of concrete and a Norwegian method for preparing cylindrical specimens in which sufficient compaction of the concrete is secured, and capping for compression test is eliminated. This method of making cylinders is particularly valuable for high strength concretes, where thickness and quality of the capping material may have considerably more effect on the com-pressive strength test results than for lower strength concretes.
