THE ROLE OF INTERIOR STRESSES IN THE STRUCTURAL DISTRUCTION OF FIBRE REINFORCED CONCRETE. FIBRE REINFORCED CEMENTS AND CONCRETES: RECENT DEVELOPMENTS. PROCEEDINGS OF AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WALES, COLLEGE OF CARDIFF, SCHOOL OF ENGINEERING, UNITED KINGDOM, SEPTEMBER 18-20, 1989

This paper is concerned with the interior stresses of micro and submicro cracks. The levels of initial and critical stresses in a loaded specimen or an element can be a measure of microcracks quantity, and their stable or unstable development in fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) structure. These stress levels influence the fatigue strength or sustained resistance of FRC which is substantial significance for elements under dynamic loads or constant sustained pressure. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 827953.
