Title: An Experimental Study of Multiaxial Creep in Concrete
Author(s): J.E. McDonald
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 735-768
Keywords: aggregates; axial loads; biaxial loads; chert; compressive strength; concretes; creep properties; deformatiopn; graywacke; high temperature; hydrostatic pressure; limestone; moisture content; nuclear reactor containment; pressure vessels; research
Abstract:The purpose of this continuing investigation is to develop information regarding the time-dependent deformation behavior of concrete in the presence of varying temperature, moisture, and loading conditions similar to those encountered in a prestressed concrete reactor vessel (PCRV). This particular investigation is concerned with one concrete strength, three aggregate types, one cement, two moisture conditions, two testing temperature, and four loading conditions.
