Title: Effects of Normal and Extreme Environment on Reinforced Concrete Structures
Author(s): Boris Bresler and Robert H. lding
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 255-304
Keywords: cracking (fracturing); creep properties; deformation; envi- ronments; fire resistance; heat of hydration; loads (forces); rein-forced
concrete; shrinkage; stresses; structural analysis; temperature
Abstract:Prediction of the response of reinforced concrete structures to variations in temperature, humidity, and load is described. Modeling of structures, loading history, environment, and material behavior is discussed and several case studies are included to illustrate the use of proposed models. The models account for nonlinear behavior under variations in load and environment and for the non-homogeneity introduced by steel reinforcement and cracking of concrete.
