The tensile strengths of 44 cokes, obtained by carbonizing blended-coal charges in a small pilot oven, were determined by the diametral compression method. Using equations derived from consideration of intergranular and transgranular failure, the tensile strengths could be calculated, with adequate precision for predictive purposes, from the blend composition and the tensile strength of cokes obtained from the individual blend components. © 1990.
