Title: Stresses Around Circular Inclusions Due to Thermal Gradients with Particular Reference to Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): J. Dundurs and 0. C. Zienkiewicz
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1523-1534
Abstract:A solution of an elastic, conducting circular inclusion in an elastic medium subject to a uniform temperature gradient is presented. The problem has several practical applications, but interest on it was focused by the increasing use of reinforced concrete in situations of high temperature gradients, such as nuclear reactor shields. The magnitude and distribution of stresses around a steel reinforcing bar in concrete is studied in some detail.
