Title: Relative Strengths of Portland Cement Mortar in Bending Under Various Loading Conditions

Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Assuming the behavior of standard mortar to be similar to that of plain concrete, tests were performed on 99 small mortar beams under sixth-, thrid- and center-point loading to verify the applicablity of the statistical theory of the strength of brittle materials to concrete structures. The theroy, first developed by Weibull, is briefly analyzed, compared to the methods used by Tucker, and finally applied to the tests at hand. Agreement between the theoretical and experimental findings is so close as to warrant future testing on plain concrete specimens.
