Abstract:
While measurements of the strength of concrete are plentiful, data of toughness, that is its ability to withstand deformations without the apperance of surface fissures, are few. Since the permanence of concrete is largely dependent upon the preservation of an integral surface, the study of extensibility and the means of increasing extensibility is of importance.
