(May 2014) ( Learn how and when to remove this template message)Compressive strength or compression strength is the capacity of a material or structure to withstand loads tending to reduce size, as opposed to tensile strength, which withstands loads tending to elongate. In other words, compressive strength resists compression (being pushed together), whereas tensile strength resists tension (being pulled apart).
However, tensilestrength of concrete is very low in compared to its compressive strength.Due to difficulty in applying uniaxial tension to a concretespecimen, the tensile strength of the concrete is determined by indirecttest methods: (1) Split Cylinder Test (2) Flexure Test.It should be noted that both of these methods give thehigher value of tensile strength than the uniaxial tensile strength.Split-Cylinder TestIt is the standard test, to determine the tensile strengthof concrete in an indirect way. In the past 40 years, many different test conditions, sometimes even completely opposite conditions have been adopted.
