HOW THE SLENDERNESS OF SPECIMENS AFFECTS THE DIRECT TENSILE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE

TESTS WERE RUN WITH BOTH CYLINDERS AND PRISMS, CAST FROM TWO CONCRETE MIXES, ONE CONTAINING RIVER PEBBLES, THE OTHER GRANULATED AGGREGATES. A SERIES OF SPECIMENS OF DIFFERENT HEIGHTS WERE USED AND ALL WERE SUBMITTED TO THE SAME COMPACTING AND CURING PROGRAM. TENSILE STRENGTH TESTS WERE MADE AND EQUATIONS ARE PRESENTED LINKING DIRECT TENSILE STRENGTH TO SLENDERNESS. IT WAS FOUND THAT THE DIRECT TENSILE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE NO LONGER CHANGES ONCE THE SLENDERNESS RATIO EQUALS 2 OR MORE FOR CYLINDERS, AND 3 OR MORE FOR PRISMS. /RRL/
