These machines are designed to test the flexural strength of concrete beams. Their design provides maximum rigidity throughout their working range as the downward movement of the piston applies load.

 

A spacer is provided for testing different sizes of beams and load is indicated on a digital indicator. For the 150 x 150 x 700mm beams, the support span is 600mm and the loading span is 200mm, whereas for the 100 x 100 x 500mm beams, the support span is 400mm and the loading span is 133mm.

 

One of the key considerations when using concrete in construction projects is how well the concrete is going to stand up to bending pressures and how often it needs to be supported. With concrete, the most effective way to study the destructive testing is the Flexural Test.

 

On a specimen beam ideally of 150 x 150 x 750mm and/or 100 x 100 x 500mm, the maximum tensile stress reach at the bottom of the test beam is considered as the Flexural Strength/Modulus of Rupture of the material.
