Measurement of Beam Deflection and Toughness


This test is performed to assess the flexural performance and the residual resistance characteristics of fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) and shortcrete. 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 complete set includes a frame suitable for proper positioning of transducers on the beam specimen, two high precision displacement transducers and an electric mean device (not required for Automax Multitest control console).

Mean device P0331/2 (see Accessories) shall be used with MCC control console only. See Techincal Specifications.
