Concrete Manual Tests: Testing Beams for Flexural Strength Mobile App

Nearly all State Departments of Transportation use third point beam breakers for flexural testing of concrete pavement. By using third point beam breakers, Mn/DOT can share its test results with other states and adapt the test results for use with AASHTO pavement design equations. The Concrete Manual Tests: Testing Beams for Flexural Strength deatails the procedure.
