Standard Test Method for Determining the Flexural Strength of a Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) Using the Three-Point Bending Test

Significance and Use

5.1 This test method is applicable for testing geosynthetic cementitious composite mats in a cured state. It is used with a constant rate of extension-type tension apparatus.

5.2 This test is an index test that may be used for manufacturing quality control (MQC). This test is appropriate for characterizing the flexural properties of a GCCM.


1.1 This test method provides guidelines for testing the flexural strength of cured geosynthetic cementitious composite mat (GCCM) products in a three (3)-point bend apparatus.

1.2 The values in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Values in inch-pound units are in parentheses for information.

1.3 This standard may involve hazardous operations, equipment, and climates. 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.

1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
