Fractal Dimension, Slit Island, Box Counting


The characteristics of the fractured surface in a concrete varies from one to the other surface. In order to characterize such surfaces, in this paper the fractal dimension of fracture surface in concrete is determined by box counting method. For evaluating and assessment of fractal dimension various literature available, that are most common studied in this paper. The slit island method and box counting method is discussed in literature survey. From laboratory testing of concrete beam the flexural strength were found and correlates with fractal dimension, which is calculated by software is discussed.
