Static Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete

Global lab provides the art of the precise, accurate & reliable testing service accrediated by NABL for durability Test of Concrete as per ASTM C 469: 2000.

Modulus of Elasticity: This test method covers determination of  chord modulus of elasticity (Young’s) of molded concrete cylinders and diamond-drilled concrete cores when under longitudinal compressive stress.


The applied load and longitudinal strain are recorded when the longitudinal strain is 50 millionths and when the applied load is equal to 40% of the cylinder compressive strength. Note that it is necessary to determine the compressive strength on companion specimens prior to testing for Modulus of Elasticity.
