Certified Material Testing Products offers a variety of concrete beam molds and concrete beam testing supplies designed to assist in the flexural strength testing of beam specimens and load tests. For example, the Combination Portable Beam Tester offers a rapid field check of concrete beam specimens that have a minimum length of 20in.
All of our Concrete Beam Molds meet ASTM and AASHTO requirements and are perfect for molding specimens for the flexural strength test. The Plastic Concrete Beam Mold uses thumb screws for quick and reliable stripping, cleaning, and assembly. The lightweight and hinge-free Steel Concrete Beam Mold assembles quickly, and with the stainless steel carrying handles, safe transport of the concrete test specimen is assured.
Concrete beam molds are essential tools for strength testing in concrete construction projects. These molds are used to create test specimens for determining the flexural strength of hardened concrete. They are typically made of steel or plastic, and come in various sizes to accommodate different sample volumes.
The beam molds are used to create rectangular specimens that are cast in place and then cured under controlled conditions. Once the specimens have reached the desired strength, they are tested using a three-point bending test to determine their flexural strength. This test measures the ability of the concrete to withstand bending forces without cracking or breaking.
Concrete beam molds are used in a variety of applications, including building construction, infrastructure projects, and quality control testing. They are particularly useful for ensuring that concrete mixes meet specified strength requirements and for verifying the quality of concrete products.
To use Concrete beam molds, the concrete is mixed and then poured into the mold. The mold is then vibrated to ensure that the concrete is evenly distributed and to remove any air pockets. Once the concrete has set, the mold is removed and the specimen is cured according to the testing standards.
Concrete beam molds are available in a range of sizes and configurations to suit different testing needs. They may be sold individually or as part of a testing kit that includes other essential equipment, such as a beam testing machine and a compression testing machine.
In summary, Concrete beam molds are an important tool for strength testing in concrete construction projects. They provide a reliable and accurate means of testing the flexural strength of concrete specimens, ensuring that concrete mixes meet specified strength requirements and that concrete products are of high quality.
