Results are calculated and reported as the modulus of rupture.

Give our test engineers a call today for help configuring the best test machine and accessories according to your standard. Partner Software automatically calculates the modulus of rupture based upon the maximum applied load and average dimensional values of the test specimen.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Please confirm that you agree with our privacy and cookies policy to submit this form. Satisfies the requirements of both ASTM C and C78 Rated to kN 22, lbf Loading span attached to a spherical seat to maintain proper alignment Includes preinstalled metric ruler to ease specimen placement.

We suggest referencing the instructions found in the ASTM C78 for the loading rates, proper specimen orientation, and application of preload to assure “gap-free” contact between the specimen and fixture.

ASTM C78 Flexural Strength of Concrete Beams

ASTM C 78 C determines the flexural strength of concrete by the use of a simple beam with third-point loading. ASTM C78 addresses the flexural testing of concrete used in the construction of slabs and pavements with a “third-point” style flexure apparatus. The desired results are that modulus of rupture is calculated and the specimen fails within the middle third of the span length in the tension area or underside of the specimen.


This standard is used in the testing of concrete in the construction of slabs and pavements. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

We suggest reviewing the standard to fully understand c87 test set up, c778, and result requirements. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
