Abstract This paper describes an experimental investigation on the flexural and anchorage strength of slate for cladding. The study has been conducted on sawed slate specimens, all showing the same surface finishing. Slate flexural strength was compared for two distinct situations: (i) using a 3-Point flexure loading configuration in batches of materials with larger cross-sectional specimen dimension (50 × 30 mm 2 ); and (ii) using a 4-Point flexure loading configuration in the same batch of… CONTINUE READING
