50-C20M82 AUTOMAX MULTITEST controlling a 3000kN EN compression frame, 15/300 kN compression/flexure cement frame and a 350 kN flexure frame

Compression strength is commonly used to evaluate concrete performance; Elastic Modulus (or Modulus Of Elasticity) value, reflecting the ability of concrete to deform elastically under a given load, is also becoming increasingly necessary to be assessed in order to avoid excessive deformations and sway in structures allowed to deflect by a certain amount (skyscrapers, bridges, etc.) and to satisfy serviceability requirements.
