Abstract:The strain properties of concrete under uniaxial tensile stress are studied and factors influencing the stress-strain relation are discussed. The influence of six factors; aggregate cement ratio, aggregate grading, water-cement ratio, curing conditions, specimen length, and loading rate are examined. The test data show that with the exception of aggregate grading, all the above factors infl uence to some degree the stress-strain relation of concrete under uniaxial tension.
