The splitting tensile test specimen was destroyed along two directions: first in the vertical direction, and while the second direction was oriented at an angle of 70-90[degrees] with respect to the horizontal plane of the fracture resistant specimen.
[14] obtained the change laws of fracture toughness, splitting tensile strength, and elastic modulus for rocks after high-temperature treatment, based on a splitting tensile test conducted on flattened Brazilian disc specimens.
The cylinder is placed horizontally between the loading surfaces of compression testing machine and the load is applied at the rate of 100 kN/ minute until the failure of the cylinder, during the test the platens of the testing machine should not be allowed to rotate in a plane perpendicular to the axis of cylinder, the splitting tensile test equation is shown below.
Many attempts have been made to find a substitute for the beam test, and it is possible that the splitting tensile test of a cylindrical specimen maybe the solution to the problem [16].
The splitting tensile test, on the cylinder specimens, was conducted in accordance with ASTM C 496.
A decade ago, Dietert and Graham introduced the splitting tensile test (see Fig.
Caption: Figure 2: (a) Slump test, (b) compressive test, (c) splitting tensile test, and (d) flexural strength test.
This method of placing specimens here is based on the loading method adopted in the static Brazilian splitting tensile test. By using the line to surface contact loading way, the splitting failure of brittle materials can be realized, and the tensile strength of rock materials can be obtained by elastic mechanics.
And then, compression test, flexural test, splitting tensile test, and bending test were conducted; finally, the differences of workability and mechanical properties of steel fiber concrete made by vibratory mixing and the traditional mixing technologies, respectively, were compared and analyzed.
The ascending segment of the axial tensile stress-strain full curve was obtained according to the splitting tensile test data, and the descending segment of the axial tensile stress-strain full curve was obtained according to the tensile stress-strain typical curve of alkali-resistant glass fiber reinforced concrete in [22,23].
The unconfined compression tests and the splitting tensile tests were carried out in accordance with ASTM D5102 [20] and ASTM C496 standards [21], respectively.
Compressive and splitting tensile tests of the specimen were carried out at 7, 14, 21, and 28 days in accordance with BS8110 [7] and Reynolds and Stedman [8].
