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.
