Assessment of mechanical properties of elements modular block




volume blocks, crack resistance, stiffness, strength, load, assessment


This study presents the control test process to assess the bearing capacity, crack resistance, and crack opening width of the volume block ceiling slabs and the floor slab of the inter-block corridor. These parameters play an important role in ensuring the reliability and durability of buildings, especially when volumetric blocks are used in construction. The study's first phase focuses on the methodology of load-carrying capacity testing of ceiling slabs. The study's second phase focuses on the materials' crack resistance. The analysis of cracks in the material structure is a key aspect since cracks can lead to deterioration of its mechanical properties and reduced durability. The third stage of the study focuses on the crack opening width. This parameter is important in determining the criticality of cracks and their effect on structural integrity. The fourth stage of the study covers the analysis of the floor slabs of the interlocking corridor. Considering the peculiarities of loads and operating conditions in this context, tests analyzing the bearing capacity and stability of the slabs are carried out. The crack opening width reached 0.9 mm and the vertical deflections exceeded 50 mm, the deflection in the inter-block corridor floor slab before failure was about 11 mm. The test results indicate its sufficient strength, stiffness, and crack resistance. The study provides a deeper understanding of the properties and characteristics of materials used in construction and optimizes their use to improve the strength and durability of buildings.
