INVESTIGATION OF RHEOLOGICAL PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE IN UNIAXIAL TENSION

THE EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT FATORS ON THE STRESS-STRAIN RELATIONSHIP OF CONCRETE IN DIRECT TENSION HAVE BEEN STUDIED. IT HAS BEEN FOUND THAT AN INCREASING CEMENT CONTENT AS WELL AS A HIGHER WATER/CEMENT RATIO CAUSE A HIGHER STRAIN VALUE AT A GIVEN TENSILE STRESS, WHILE AN INCREASING SPECIMEN LENGTH AND A HIGHER LOADING RATE RESULT IN A DECREASE OF THE STRAIN. THE INFLUENCES OF AGGREGATE GRADING (WHEN THE MAXIMUM PARTICLE SIZE IS KEPT CONSTANT) AND OF SPECIMEN CROSS-SECTION ARE INSIGNIFICANT. WATER STORAGE RESULTS IN AN INCREASE, DRY CURING IN A DECREASE OF THE STRAIN VALUE. /RRL(A)/
