CREEP OF CONCRETE SUBJECTED TO HIGH COMPRESSIVE STRESSES

KRIECHEN VON BETON UNTER HOHEN DRUCKSPANNUNGEN

THE TEST MATERIAL IS TO BE EVALUATED WITH REFERENCE TO THE DEFORMATIONS OF CONCRETE FOR PERMANENTLY ACTING LOADS SO THAT IT CAN BE USED FOR FURTHER SCIENTIFIC STUDIES. THE MOST IMPORTANT RESULT WILL THUS BE THE DATA OBTAINED REGARDING THE CREEP OF CONCRETE IN THE STRESS ZONE BETWEEN THE WORKING LOAD AND THE CREEP (RESISTANCE) LIMIT. THE DEFORMATION DATA, TAKING INTO ACCOUNT THE MANY LIMITING QUANTITIES, MUST BE SUBJECTED TO A COMPLICATED COMPENSATION METHOD WHICH IS CARRIED OUT PARTLY GRAPHICALLY AND PARTLY USING SUITABLE WORKING FORMULAE, EMPLOYING ELECTRONIC COMPUTER PROGRAMMS.
