Title: Simplified Stress Analysis of Heated Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): H. M. Haydl and A. N. Sherbourne
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 469-471
Keywords: creep properties; cylindrical shells; loads (forces); radiation shielding;
reinforced concrete; shrinkage; stress analysis; thermal stresses.
Abstract:Hollow reinforced concrete cylinders are being proposed as shields for stored nuclear wastes. The structural response under thermal loading is therefore of interest. A simple method to calculate approximate thermal stresses in reinforced concrete containers is presented. The procedure accounts for creep and shrinkage of the concrete. The method is illustrated with an example.
