Abstract

It is frequently reported that the higher the strength of cement based materials, the more brittle is their behavior. It could be useful to quantitatively express the degree of brittleness. In this paper a direct method is suggested to calculate two size-independent fracture toughness parameters from the experimental results. The method was developed based on tests on notched-beams of different mix proportions and different sizes.
