Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to report the results of an evaluation of a specific type of test procedure, the ring tensile test, which results in a measure of the tensile strength of concrete. No attempt is made to document the many references to and discussions of specific values of 'tensile strength' and the techniques used to obtain them by other investigators over the years with the exception of the work involving the ring tensile test. Some general comments about tensile strength testing are made to provide the reader with the background which ultimately prompted the development of the ring test for concrete. (Author)
