Correct Answer - Option 3 : 0.7√fck

Concept:

Modulus of rupture: It is a measure of the tensile strength of concrete beams or slabs.

Flexural strength of concrete/ Bending tensile strength of concrete/Modulus of rupture of concrete (fcr) is given by

${{\text{f}}_{\text{cr}}}\text{ }\!\!~\!\!\text{ }=\text{ }\!\!~\!\!\text{ }0.7\times \sqrt{{{\text{f}}_{\text{ck}}}}$

Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete: It can be defined as the ratio of applied stress to corresponding strain within elastic limits.

It may be given as:

i) Short Term Modulus of elasticity = 5000 √fck

ii) Long Term Modulus of elasticity $=\frac{5000\sqrt{{{f}_{ck}}}}{1+\theta }$

where θ is the creep coefficient
