Title: Concrete Behavior Under Combined Stresses Up to Failures: Test Results on Small Dimension Prestressed Concrete Pressure Vessel Models
Author(s): F.L. Scotto
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1471-1512
Keywords: biaxial loads; concretes; cracking (fracturing); cyclic loads; deformation; microconcretes; models; nuclear reactor containment; pressure; pressure vessels; prestressed concrete; research; strains; strength; stresses; stress-strain relationships
Abstract:This paper provides results of particular interest associated with the behavior under combined stresses of typical sections related to the models of vessel component in prestressed concrete (cap slabs - cylindrical wall section) during the pressurization up to the structural collapse. The paper points out the signifance of the analysis of concrete structure behavior by means of small dimension model structures and the contribution of these studies to a better understanding of the problem.
