Method of Test for Splitting Tensile Strength
of Concrete," Bureau of Indian Standards, New Delhi.
These mixtures achieved a compressive strength around 5,000 psi in 28 days and had properties similar to those of conventional hydraulic cement concrete in terms of compressive strength, modulus of elasticity, modulus of rupture, splitting tensile strength
, permeability, resistance to cycles of freezing and thawing, and acceptance.
Compressive and Splitting Tensile strength
were determined as per ASTM C-39 and ASTM C-496 by using Universal Testing Machine (UTM).

From AT sampling points are to be distinguished, and cores must be taken to address and carry out laboratory tests on samples (printing, splitting tensile strength
, modulus of elasticity, carbonation, concrete composition).
There are three various kinds of specimen size for the compressive strength test: 40 x 40 x 40 mm, 100 x 100 x 100 mm, and 100 x 100 x 300 mm, marked with 4, 10, and 10 prismoids, respectively; specimens 4 and 10 are for flexural strength test and 10 prismoids for elastic module test, and 10 is for splitting tensile strength
test and shear strength test.
15%) the percentage of reduction in splitting tensile strength
is lower than that in plain concrete (without fiber) after exposure to a temperature 100,200 &300[degrees]C comparable to normal temperature 25[degrees]C.

Limited literature is available concerning the effect of RCA on the splitting tensile strength
Then concrete mix design for structural concrete was designed according to ACI 2112-98 and ASTM 330; concrete cubes, cylinders, and blocks were casted and their compressive, flexural and splitting tensile strength
Testing methods are also outlined for specimen preparation, dry shrinkage of concrete block, splitting tensile strength
, flexural bond strength and water penetration and leakage.
Some reports have said that in mature concrete the improvements in compressive strengths, splitting tensile strength
, and flexural strength are not really significant when synthetic fibres have been applied in low volume (0.
