Title: Strength and Microcracking of Plain
Concrete Under Triaxial Compression
Author(s): K. T. Krishnaswamy
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 856-862
Keywords: axial loads;compressive strength;concretes;cracking (fracturing);cubes; microcracking;plain concrete;triaxail loads.
Abstract:Concrete cubes were axially loaded in uniaxial and triaxial compressive loads separately. Slices were made from the strained specimen and these were examined for internal cracks using a microscope. By comparison of the internal microcracks in the two loading conditions an attempt has been made to explain the increase in the strength of concrete under triaxial compression.
