Abstract:

This recommendation is valid for structural applications of concrete under service and accident conditions. This document presents test parameters (material and environmental) and test procedures for measuring the direct tensile strength of concrete cylinders in the longitudinal direction, either at high temperatures after first heating or after cooling. Test temperatures range from 20 to 750 deg C or above depending on the capability of test equipment.
