- Homework Statement:
- What are the benefits of splitting tensile test on concrete?
- Relevant Equations:
- f spt MPa = 2 F / π D L
I know tensile test consist for direct tension, splitting tension, and flexural tension. Tensile test known as to know how the material behaves under the tension and to know how much of load the material can bear it before fracture. But for the splitting tensile test, i still confused. Why do we need splitting and what's the benefit f it on concrete specimens.
