Concrete has high compressive strength but lower tensile strength. Therefore, it is reinforced by steel embedded in it. Reinforcing steels are mainly produced in diameters from approx. 5 mm to approx. 60 mm. The smaller diameters are then further processed into mats or lattices before having concrete poured over them on site.
Fields of application are construction and civil engineering projects. Typical tests are tensile test, flexure tests, shear tests, fatigue tests.
Our flexible and combinable modular program ToniNORM offers servo hydraulic solutions for the tests of reinforced steel.
