with the hypothesis that in uniaxial compression the dynamic increase of compressive strength is a structural effect due to lateral inertia. Finally, the numerical simulations of the dynamic Brazilian disc test suggest that structural effects also contribute to the dynamic increase in the apparent indirect tensile strength.
