Title: Influence of Thermal Exposures on Mechanical Characteristics of Concrete
Author(s): V.V. Bertero and M. Polivka
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 505-531
Keywords: axial loads; compressive strength; concretes; deformation; high temperature; limestone; modulus of elasticity; moisture content; Poission ratio; nuclear reactor containment; research; strains; stress-strain relationships; thermal cycling tests
Abstract:A report on the first phase of a program of investigation of the mechanical properties of concrete subject to high temperatures is presented. The first phase had two objectives: 1) to evaluate instrumentation and techniques and 2) to study the effect of temperature on the mechanical characteristics of concrete under uniaxial stress.
