EFFECT OF CREEP ON THE FLEXURAL STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION OF CONCRETE BEAMS

THE EFFECT OF CREEP ON THE DEFORMATION AND STRENGTH OF STATICALLY DETERMINATE BEAMS OF RECTANGULAR AND T-SECTION OF REINFORCED AND PRESTRESSED CONCRETE WAS STUDIED BOTH EXPERIMENTALLY AND THEORETICALLY. THE EFFECT OF TIME-DEPENDENT DEFORMATION WAS INTRODUCED BY BOTH THE REDUCED MODULUS CONCEPT AND BY NUMERICAL INTEGRATION OF SPECIFIC CREEP CURVES. THE CONCLUSION WAS MADE THAT A PREVIOUS CREEP HISTORY HAS A VERY SMALL EFFECT ON THE FLEXURAL STRENGTH OF REINFORCED CONCRETE. /TRRL/
