STRENGTH OF CONCRETE UNDER MULTIAXIAL STRESS

The strength of concrete under multiaxial stress is a basic property of concrete of vital concern to the structural concrete designer. In many structural forms concrete is often called upon to resist biaxial and triaxial stresses. Pressure vessels for nuclear reactors, end blocks of prestressed concrete beams, and girders and piers of curved and skew bridges are some of the many applications where the concrete is subjected to complex stress systems. Despite considerable research endeavour, a clear picture of the strength of concrete under multiaxial loading has not yet emerged. The paper provides simple guidelines base on existing research on the important problem of the strength of concrete under multiaxial stress. /Author/TRRL/
