CIP 16 - Flexural Strength Concrete WHAT is Flexural Strength? Flexural strength is one measure of the tensile strength of concrete. It is a measure of an unreinforced con-crete beam or slab to resist failure in bending. It is measured by loading 6 x 6-inch (150 x 150-mm) con-crete beams with a span length at least three times the depth.

A concrete can be 'set' in that it is no longer fluid, but it may ...
Maturity is a non-destructive approach to testing concrete that allows you to estimate the early-age and compressive strength of in-place concrete in real-time. Adopting the maturity approach in your jobsite eliminates the need for concrete cylinder break tests, allowing you to greatly optimize your schedule.
