CREEP PREDICTION FOR CONCRETE UNDER MULTIAXIAL STRESS

PREVIOUS TESTS ASSUME THAT FOR THE PREDICTIONS OF CREEP STRAINS RESULTING FROM MULTIAXIAL STRESSES, THE POISSON'S RATIO FOR CREEP IS CONSTANT AND EQUAL TO THE STATIC ELASTIC VALUE. TO PREDICT CREEP UNDER MULTIAXIAL LOADING, THIS ASSUMPTION WAS COMBINED WITH THE RATE OF FLOW METHOD. CREEP PREDICTIONS, ON THE BASIS OF INDEPENDENTLY OBTAINED CONTROLLED DATA, ARE COMPARED WITH THE EXPERIMENTAL STRAINS OBTAINED FROM MULTIAXIALLY LOADED CONCRETE SPECIMENS. ONLY MODERATE STRESS LEVELS WERE CONSIDERED AND ALL SPECIMENS WERE SEALED. THE RESULTS OF THE COMPARISON INDICATE SATISFACTORY AGREEMENT BETWEEN THE PROPOSED METHOD AND THE TEST RESULTS. SECOND-ORDER EFFECTS NOT TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT IN THE ANALYSIS ARE DISCUSSED. A NUMERICAL EXAMPLE IS INCLUDED IN THE APPENDIX TO SHOW THE PROPOSED METHOD. /AUTHOR/
