Abstract:
Long-time torsion tests on two specimens, one of plain concrete and the other of reinforced concrete, are presented together with short-time tests on two companion specimens. The effects of sustained loading on ultimate torsional strength and stiffness, the torque-twist curves, and the concrete strains are considered. The test results are also examined with regard to elastic and plastic theories.
