Title: Behavior of Concrete Under Variable Temperature and Loading
Author(s): M.A. Mukaddam, and B. Bresler
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 771-798
Keywords: age; concretes; creep properties; deformation; high temperature; loads (forces); mathematical models; nuclear reactor containment; pressure vessels; research; rheological properties; temperature
Abstract:A mathematical model is developed which defines deformation of concrete taking into account temperature history, load history, aging of concrete, and influence of temperature on creep of concrete. Previously published experimental data on sealed specimens is used to dervice constitutive relations which account for effect of temperature on creep. These expressions are applied to concrete under variable uniaxial compression and variable temperature.
