Fracture toughness is the resistance of a material to failure from a fracture, starting from a pre-existing crack (Broek 1989). The purpose of the present work is to review the applications of fracture mechanics to hardened cement paste (hcp), concrete, fibre reinforced concrete (frc), and polymer impregnated concrete concrete (PIC).

The tests of sixty concrete specimens were performed under different volume fractions of coarse aggregate of 19%, 25%, 31%, 37%, 43%, and 50%. Kishitani, K. and Maeda, K., Compressive fracture of cracked mortar. However, like other toughness parameters determined from the area under the load-displacement curve, its use should be limited to comparisons among results obtained under the same test conditions. Halvorsen, G.T., Toughness of portland cement concrete, Ph.D. Thesis, University of Illinois, Urbana (1979). A typical testing machine uses a pendulum to strike a notched specimen of defined cross-section and deform it. Four- and three-point bendings are the commonly used testing configurations, from which tough- ness parameters, such as equivalent and residual strength, are obtained based on simple elastic bending theory at the crack plane [3–7]. Recently, researchers have used several techniques to measure the fracture toughness of AC. McReath, D.R., Newman, J.B. and Newman, K., The influence of aggregate particles on the local strain distribution and fracture mechanism of cement paste during drying shrinkage and loading to failure. compressive toughness has been reported [15, 23, 24] Most of the studies on the application of steel fiber in LWC and changing of compressive toughness refer to the concrete with Pumice, fly ash or oil palm shell [15, 24-26] While, because of the wide existence of … and Cotterell, B., Size effects and scaling laws of fracture in asbestos cement.

Following indirect tests are conducted to determine the strength of aggregate: (i) Crushing strength test on prepared rock samples (ii) Aggregate crushing value (ACV) test on aggregate particles (i) Crushing strength test on a prepared rock sample. Aggregates used in the construction of buildings and pavements are also subjected to impact due to sudden load in buildings and moving wheel loads on pavements.
