Description

This test method evaluates the flexural performance of fiber-reinforced concrete using parameters derived from the load-deflection curve obtained by testing a simply supported beam under third-point loading using a closed-loop, servo-controlled testing system.

It provides for the determination of first-peak and peak loads and the corresponding stresses calculated by inserting them in the formula for modulus of rupture.

This test method utilizes two preferred specimen sizes of 100 by 100 by 350 mm (4 by 4 by 14 in.) tested on a 300 mm (12 in.) span, or 150 by 150 by 500 mm (6 by 6 by 20 in.) tested on a 450 mm (18 in.) span. A specimen size different from the two preferred specimen sizes is permissible.
