Measurement of beam deflection and thougness

EN 14488-3 | ASTM C1609 | ASTM C1018
General description
This test is performed to assess the flexural performance and the residual resistance characteristics of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) and shortcrete. This test has to be performed with a suitable flexural frame as, for instance, our models 50-C1201/BFR or 50-C1601/FR, and a control console capable of applying load in displacement control as our model Advantest 9 or MCC Multitest.
The complete set includes: 50-C1200/5 device consisting of a frame suitable for proper positioning of transducers on the beam specimen, two high precision displacement transducers (82-P0331/C x2) and an electric mean device (82-P0331/2).

All tests have to be performed under displacement control. This is the reason why we propose the ADVANTEST 9 50-C9842 or MCC Multitest 50-C8422/M Control consoles. See MCC, multifunctional control console, ADVANTEST 9, Servo-hydraulic control console
