STRENGTH AND DEFORMATION PROPERTIES OF PLAIN CONCRETE SUBJECT ON COMBINED STRESS. PART 1: STRENGTH RESULTS OBTAINED ON ONE CONCRETE

Measurements of the strength of a concrete specimen when subjected to conventional triaxial compression, 'extension', and tension plus biaxial compression are described. The concrete specimens had a water/cement ratio of 0.47 and an aggregate/cement ratio of 3.9, and were tested in a moist condition at four ages, namely 7, 14, 28 and 56 days. Relations are given for the dependence of the failure stresses of the particular concrete tested on the applied stresses and the specimen age, and on the applied stresses and the compressive strength of the concrete at atmospheric pressure. /TRRL/
