CIP 16  Flexural Strength Concrete
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 concrete beam or slab to resist failure in bending. It is measured by loading 6 x 6inch (150 x 150mm) concrete beams with a span length at least three times the depth.
