THE DEVELOPMENT OF A UNIAXIAL TENSION TEST FOR CONCRETE AND SIMILAR BRITTLE MATERIALS

THE RESULTS OF A STUDY OF PREVIOUS METHODS TO DETERMINE THE UNIXIAL OR DIRECT TENSILE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE ARE PRESENTED. FROM THE RESULTS, FIVE CRITERIA FOR AN IDEAL UNIAXIAL TENSION TEST ARE FORMULATED. TWO TESTING MACHINES, USING THE FRICTIONAL GRIPPING TECHNIQUE, HAVE BEEN BUILT WHICH, AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, SATISFY THE FIVE CRITERIA. RESULTS ARE PRESENTED WHICH SHOW THAT BOTH MACHINES ARE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING A UNIFORM TENSILE STRAIN DISTRIBUTION IN A SPECIMEN AND BOTH MACHINES GIVE COEFFICIENTS OF VARIATION FOR TEST TO FAILURE PROGRAMS WHICH ARE COMPARABLE WITH OTHER DESTRUCTIVE CONCRETE TESTS. /AUTHOR/
