Flexural strength is an important parameter in the design of concrete pavement because of its significant impact on the cracking behavior of the pavements.
However, this extent of phase transformation failed to significantly affect the biaxial flexural strength of the Y-TZP tested [12].
To evaluate the feasibility of replacing commonly used steel fiber-reinforced concrete with latex-modified fiber-reinforced concrete for a tunnel liner application, this study tested the compressive strength, flexural strength, and chloride ion penetration as a function of volume fraction with fine particles of blast furnace slag, steel fiber, and macrosynthetic fiber.
The specimens of different mixture proportions in Table 2 were tested for compressive strength, flexural strength, and flexural toughness.
Accordingly, in this study, blast-induced local damages and static flexural strength of intact, damaged, and repaired specimens were examined.
After the cooling period to laboratory temperature, the compressive and flexural strength values of samples were determined according to TS EN 1015-11 (2000).
ABSTRACT: The effect of variation on water plaster ratio for two unknown Gypsum plaster were determined and been compared with common Gypsum plaster in terms of its absorptive properties (porosity and water absorption) and flexural strength. Two (2) types of Gypsum plaster (A and B) were subjected to several test to determine the chemical composition, porosity, water absorption and flexural strength property.
The DEPS with PLLA prevents oxidizer-triggered reduction of flexural strength since PLLA is biocompatible and fully biodegradable polymer that has high tensile modulus, tensile strength [14, 15], however, suffers from its low elongation at break and flexibility [16].
Flexural strength is one of the most significant test to evaluate mechanical performance of dental restorative materials because it combines compression, tension and shear stresses.
The reinforced concrete elements normal section flexural strength is evaluated through V.
Denture fractures are very common, reflecting the fact that both impact strength and flexural strength are barely adequate.
