In other words, materials’ testing examines the overall strength, toughness, flexibility, suitability and fitness for purpose. Compression and tensile testing are the oldest and most common materials tests performed. Concrete has relatively high compressive strength, but significantly lower tensile strength, and as such is usually reinforced with materials that are strong in tension. Compressive strength of concrete can be determined in this lab using Compression testing machine. Non-destructive testing can be done with the help of Rebound Hammer. Concrete can also be pre-stressed (reducing tensile stress) using internal steel cables (tendons), allowing for beams or slabs with a longer span than is practical with reinforced concrete alone. Inspection of concrete structures can be non-destructive if carried out with equipment such as a Schmidt hammer, which is used to estimate concrete strength.
