Standard the status of a national standard without any alteration. Up-to-date lists and bibliographical references concerning such national
standards may be obtained on application to the CEN Management Centre or to any CEN member.
This European Standard exists in three official versions (English, French, German). A version in any other language made by translation
under the responsibility of a CEN member into its own language and notified to the CEN Management Centre has the same status as the
official versions.

Foreword
This document (EN 13161:2008) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 246 “Natural stones”,
the secretariat of which is held by UNI.
This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical
text or by endorsement, at the latest by October 2008, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at
the latest by October 2008.
Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent
rights. CEN [and/or CENELEC] shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.
This document supersedes EN 13161:2001.
This European Standard is one of the series of European Standards for tests on natural stone.

1 Scope
This European Standard specifies a method to determine the flexural strength of natural stones under
constant moment. This European Standard contains provision for both an identification test and for a
technological test.
2 Normative references
The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated
references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced
document (including any amendments) applies.
EN 12390-4, Testing hardened concrete — Part 4: Compressive strength — Specification for testing machines
EN 12390-5, Testing hardened concrete — Part 5: Flexural strength of test specimens
3 Principle
After appropriate preparation a specimen of the rock to be tested is laid and centred between two supports.
Thereafter the specimen is subjected to a load using two parallel rollers acting on the top surface of the
specimen. These loading rollers are centred and located a distance of one third of the length of span. The
loads are steadily increased until failure.
