Title: Modal Determination of Concrete Resistance to Popout Formation
Author(s): Hans Henrik Bache and Jens Christian Isen
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 445-450

Abstract:An experimental investigation was carried out to deter-mine the resistance of popout formation in mortar. It was found that the required pressure to produce popouts on a concrete surface, from a spherically shaped particle near the surface, is directly proportional to the distance of the particle from the surface, and the tensile strength of the concrete, and inversely proportional to the size of the particle.
