COLLISION LOADS ON REINFORCED CONCRETE SUPPORTS

ANPRALLASTEN BEI STAHLBETONSTUETZEN

IN ORDER TO DETERMINE THE BEHAVIOUR OF CONCRETE UNDER IMPACT STRESS, A TEST INSTALLATION WAS BUILT BY THE GERMAN RAILWAYS WHICH IF CONVERTED CAN ALSO BE USED FOR STUDIES OF THE BEHAVIOUR OF CONCRETE STEEL NO.3. BY MEANS OF STUDIES OF CONCRETE BEAMS REINFROCED WITH CONCRETE STEEL NO.3, THE DETERMINATIVE FACTORS RESULTING FROM VARIOUS LOADING SPEEDS WHICH AFFECT THE BEHAVIOUR OF THIS STEEL ARE TO BE CHECKED.
