I am working on my undergrad capstone project and decided to do a materials analysis of carbon fiber through the lens of bridge construction. One of the tests I decided to run was to lay carbon fiber rods inside of concrete. I plan on placing each end of the slab of concrete (16"x8"x3" thick) on a block and applying a force to the middle to see at what force it breaks. What exactly would I be testing in this case? Tensile strength, compressive strength, etc.
