This test is performed to assess the flexural performance and the residual resistance characteristics of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) and shortcrete slabs.
This test has to be performed with a suitable flexural frame having proper stiffness and capacity as, for instance, our models 50-C15xx/FR or 50-C17xx/FR, and a control console capable of applying load in displacement control as our model MCC or Automax Multitest.
The test can be carried out on square or round slabs according to EN standard or ASTM standard.
In both cases the test set includes a supporting frame for the sprayed slab, a loading spherically seated punch and a displacement transducer for central slab deflection measurement.
Testing to ASTM can be performed only in the flexure frames having 300kN or 350kN capacity.
