REVIBRATED CONCRETE - EFFECT ON THE STRESS/STRAIN CURVE

Uniaxial compression tests conducted by a hydraulic machine on 318 concrete prisms show that revibration does not affect the form of the complete stress-strain curve sufficiently to invalidate the present elastic and limit state design procedures. Revibration increases the crushing strength, the initial modulus of elasticity and the linearity of the stress-strain curve and reduces the strain at ultimate stress. The peak variations occur at a revibration delay of about two hours but results are too variable for advantage to be obtained in design.
