Description / Abstract:

This test method covers the procedure for determining the flexural strength of stone by use of a simple beam using quarter-point loading.

Stone tests shall be made when pertinent for the situation when the load is perpendicular to the bedding plane and when the load is parallel to the bedding plane.

As required, the flexural tests shall also be conducted under wet conditions.

The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
