FATIGUE OF OFFSHORE CONCRETE STRUCTURES-DESIGN AND EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATIONS

Results from pilot testing of reinforced concrete specimens exposed to repeated reversible loading are presented. The main parameters investigated are the effects of cracking, water pressure, frequency of testing and the stress level in the specimen. The results indicate that the fatigue strength of concrete is considerably reduced when exposed to a marine environment and repeated reversible stresses.
