CONSIDERATIONS FOR DESIGN OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES SUBJECTED TO FATIGUE LOADING (REVISED 1992)

This report presents information that is intended to aid the practicing engineer confronted with consideration of repeated loading on concrete structures. Investigations of the fatigue properties of component materials--concrete, reinforcing bars, welded reinforcing mats, and prestressing tendons--are reviewed. Application of this information to predicting the fatigue life of beams and pavements is discussed. A significant change in Section 3.1.2 of the 1992 revisions is the increase in the allowable stress range for prestressing steel from 0.04 f sub pu to 0.06 f sub pu.
