Title: Considerations for Design of Concrete Structures Subjected to Fatigue Loading
Author(s): ACI Committee 215
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 97-121
Keywords: beams (supports);compressive strength;concrete pavements;cracking (fracturing);dynamic loads;fatigue (materials);impact;loads (forces); microcracking; plain concrete;prestressed concrete;prestressing steels; reinforced concrete;reinforcing steels.
Abstract: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.
