Tensile Strength Of Concrete Is Measured By

By Aina Parasher|Updated : July 21st, 2022

 Tensile strength of concrete is measured by

  1. Direct tension test in the universal testing machine
  2. Applying third point loading on a prism 
  3. Applying compressive load along the diameter of the cylinder
  4. Applying tensile load along the diameter of the cylinder

Answer: C. Applying compressive load along the diameter of the cylinder.

Tensile strength of concrete is measured by applying compressive load along the diameter of the cylinder.

Solution

Tensile strength of concrete is measured by the split cylinder test (Applying compressive load along the diameter of the cylinder). It is measured in pressure unit.

The split tensile strength of concrete =2PDL

Where, P = Maximum applied load

D = Diameter of cylinder

L = Length of cylinder.

Hence, the tensile strength of concrete is measured by applying compressive load along the diameter of the cylinder.
