Note. Results of average cylinder compressive strength(a) and modulus of elasticity(b) were same as given in Table 2. The results of tensile strength(c) are taken from Table 4. The results of fracture energy(d) were calculated using the formula given in Table 2.12 in [26]. Prescribed displacement(e) is provided on trial basis. The values of maximum strain(f) at the bottom and at the top were estimated by the results of the lateral displacements (in mm) by the distance between the monitoring point 3 and 4, which was 60 mm.
