Tensile Strength of Concrete

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Civil Engineering

Tensile strength of concrete, abbreviated as \(f_t\), is valid for normal weight concrete.

 

Tensile Strencth of concrete formula

\(\large{ f_t =  7.5 \; \sqrt{ f_{c}{'}  }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ f_t }\) = tensile strength of concrete

\(\large{ f_{c}{'} }\)  = concrete specified cylinder strength 28 day (compressive strength)
