how to calculate the tensile strength of concrete

### Concrete:

It is the term used to indicate the paste formed by the addition of water in a specified proportion in a mixture of binding material, fine aggregate, coarse aggregates, and admixture (if required).

**Concrete** = Binding material + Fine aggregate + Coarse aggregate + Water

### Tensile strength test:

The tensile strength can be farmed by any of the following methods;

Flexural tensile strength test

Splitting cylinder test

### Flexural tensile strength test:

Modulus of rupture indicates the Flexural tensile strength.

In order to find the modulus of rupture beam size 15 cm× 15 cm× 70 cm is prepared.

Then beam is subjected to a two-point load and the magnitude at which it shows the sign of failure is noted down and find the modulus of rupture.

### Splitting cylindrical test:

The cylindrical sample is laid horizontal and is subjected to the compressive load in the UTM machine.

During this tensile stress is developed in the middle 5/6 portion of the section of the cylinder due to which its failure takes place.

This test gives a more uniform and accurate result.

The greatest advantage of this test is the same sample is used to find the compressive strength of the concrete.
