Issues of Testing of Cementitious Composites in Uniaxial Tension


Article Preview

The paper deals with the issues of uniaxial tension tests of concrete and fibre reinforced concrete. Possible shapes of specimens and arrangements of the experiment are discussed, including the consequences arising from the adjustments. Behaviour of sample during loading, before and after initiation of the first crack is studied, stresses in the critical cross-section as well as loading methods are analysed.
