Flexural strength, also known as modulus of rupture, or bend strength, or transverse rupture strength is a material property, defined as the stress in a material just before it yields in a flexure test. For specific projects, the concrete mix should be de­signed to give both adequate durability and flexural strength at the lowest possible cost. Meeting all these requirements on a jobsite is extremely difficult, often resulting in unreliable and generally low MR values. The results of flexural test on concrete expressed as a modulus of rupture which denotes as (MR) in MPa or psi. Compression vs. Flexural Strength for Quality Control of Pavements, Steve Kosmatka, CTT PL 854, 1985, Portland Cement Association, Skokie, IL. The formula is not exact because it is influenced by the type of aggregate. Flexural test evaluates the tensile strength of concrete indirectly. The flexural strength is expressed as the modulus of rupture (MR) in psi (MPa). Many state highway agencies have used flexural strength, but are now changing to compressive strength or maturity concepts for job control and quality assurance of concrete paving. It is measured by loading 6 x 6 inch (150 x 150-mm) concrete beams with a span length at least three times the depth. 14 37 Values of modulus of elasticity MOE, the ratio of stress, te, force per unit area, to strain, le deformation per unit length, in GPa) and flexural strength (a measure of the ability to resist failure in bending in MPa) were determined for a sample of concrete beams of a certain type, resulting in the following data: HOE Strength 29.9 334 33.6 35.2 34 36.0 3.1 364 31 178 18.5 9039.400.8 58 6.2 .

ACI 207R, Effect of Restraint, Volume Change, and Reinforcement on Cracking of Mass Concrete, states in Chapter 3 that concrete’s tensile strength is often taken as 6.7 times the square root of its compressive strength. 0000006212 00000 n Flexural strength identifies the amount of stress and force an unreinforced concrete slab, beam or other structure can withstand such that it resists any bending failures. It is measured by loading 6 x 6-inch (150 x 150-mm) Flexural Strength, age, and design relationships. However, the best correlation for specific materials is obtained by laboratory tests for given materials and mix design. The transverse bending test is most frequently employed, in which a specimen having either a circular or rectangular cross-section is bent until fracture or yielding using a three point flexural test technique. In simple terms, it is the extent to which an object or any material may resist breakage when bent. In order to test the flexural strength of a concrete beam, its span length should be at least three times the depth. The flexural strength is expressed as Modulus of Rupture (MR) in psi (MPa) and is determined by standard test methods ASTM C 78 (third-point loading) or ASTM C 293 (center-point loading). The flexural test is conducted as per ASTM D-790M-86 to determine the flexural strength and modulus of the composites. Modulus of rupture can also be defined as the measure of the extreme fibre stresses when a member is subjected to bending. There is a high likelihood that testing problems, or moisture differences within a beam caused from premature drying, will cause low strength. For higher slump, after rodding, tap the molds to release air pockets and spade along the sides to consolidate. It is measured by loading unreinforced 150x150 mm concrete beams with a span three times the depth (usually 450mm).
