As per the American Concrete Institute, the following definitions for flexural members are given: Slab: The slab is a flexural member with a uniform depth that supports area loads over its surface. It is measured in terms of stress, here given the symbol $${\displaystyle \sigma }$$. It is measured by loading 6 x 6-inch (150 x 150-mm) con- crete beams with a span length at least three times the depth. Then another object applies load on the central part of the concrete, between the platforms, and gradually increases pressure until the concrete breaks.

Flexural strength of any material depends on homogeneity, if material is homogeneous its flexural strength would be same as its tensile strength. Testing flexural strength is critical in bridge construction, isn't it? FOREWORD 0.1 This Indian Standard was adopted by the Indian Standards Institution on 20 December 1979, after the draft finalized by the Cement and Concrete Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. The flexural strength of concrete was noticed in the range of 2.25 MPa and 2.29 MPa, whereas, the higher value of flexural strength was recorded with 0.4% polypropylene fibre addition.

A silica fume plays an important role in the strength of concrete as reported in many previous studies. Hard but brittle objects, such as wood concrete, alloys and plastic, are used more often in construction than elastic and ductile objects such as rubber, gold or silver, so it is more important to evaluate the former’s flexural and tensile strengths. showed that both the compressive and flexural strengths are improved with increasing silica fume content. Concrete has very little tensile strength because it’s not designed to bend. ASTM Committee C09.
