AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE PREDICTION OF CREEP AND THE TRUE ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE - I

A PROCEDURE FOR PREDICTING CREEP DATA AND THE MAGNITUDE OF THE TRUE ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE FROM THE OBSERVATION OF THE RATE OF STRESSING TEST, WHICH ITSELF TAKES ONLY A SHORT TIME, IS DESCRIBED. THE NECESSITY OF A KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAGNITUDE OF CREEP STRAIN AND THE TRUE ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE IS STRESSED AND IT IS POINTED OUT THAT THE EFFECT OF TIME ON THE DEFORMATIONAL RESPONSE OF CONCRETE REQUIRES TO BE TAKEN ACCOUNT OF, NOT EMPIRICALLY, BUT ON A MORE RATIONAL BASIS. ANALYSIS USING RHEOLOGICAL MODELS APPEARS TO PROVIDE SUCH A SOLUTION. EARLIER RESEARCH WITH RESPECT TO THE PREDICTION OF CREEP AND THE RELAXATION OF TRUE ULTIMATE STRENGTH IS BRIEFLY REVIEWED AND A METHOD OF PREDICTION BASED ON A NON-LINEAR MAXWELL MODEL IS SUGGESTED. /RRL/A/
