Abstract:
The splitting tension test is used to determine an engineering measure of the damage induced by uniaxial compressive loading. The method is applied to monotonic and cyclic loading. Test results indicate that damage in high-strength concrete evolves at a much lower rate than in normal con-cretes. Also, it is observed that tensile strength could be reduced by 25 per-cent due to compressive stresses applied in a transverse direction.
