Study of Strength Criterion for Dynamic Compression of Concrete under Biaxial Equal Proportion Loading
The dynamic compressive experiments of cubic concrete specimens under various biaxial equal proportion loading were preformed. The biaxial equal proportion stress in the tests were kept constant at 1:0, 1:0.5 and 1:1, respectively, and the tested strain rate ranged from 10−5/s to 10−2/s. Based on the experimental results, the influence of the strain rates on compressive characteristics of concrete under various biaxial stress ratios were researched. The unified strength criterion in terms of principal stress space considering the influence of strain rates and biaxial stress ratio is proposed. The fitting curves by the present strength criterion agree well with experimental data.
