Concrete has a high compressive strength but low tensile strength. Therefore, it is reinforced by embedded steel. Reinforcing steel bars are mainly produced in diameters from 5 mm to 60 mm. Smaller diameters are further processed into mats or lattices before concrete pouring.
Fields of applications are construction and civil engineering projects. Typical tests are tensile, flexural, shear and fatigue tests.
Our flexible modular program ToniNORM offers servo hydraulic solutions for this application.
