Analysis of Stress - Strain Curve on Recycled Aggregate Concrete under Uniaxial and Conventional Triaxial Compression
43 Φ50mm × 100mm column stress - strain curve tests are completed through RMT-201, which studied the compressive stress - strain curves of recycled aggregate concretes at distinct confining pressures under conventional triaxial stress state. This article, has analyzed the influence of different water-cement ratios, confining pressures on the curves, and raised constitutive equations of triaxial compression stress - strain curves for the different strength of recycled aggregate concretes.The brittleness indexes for recycled aggregate concrete under distinct confining pressures were analyzed contrastively. The result showed that: the failure modes of recycled aggregate concrete specimens are similar to those of ordinary concretes, but the final failure patterns of recycled aggregate and ordinary aggregate are quite different; with the increase of lateral pressure, the peak stress and peak strain of recycled aggregate concrete show linear growth; recycled aggregate concrete compressive stress - strain curves under the uniaxial and triaxial stress states are similar to ordinary aggregate concrete, yet peak strain shows signs of larger growth; with the increase of lateral pressure, the brittleness of recycled aggregate concrete reduces. The brittleness index of high-strength recycled aggregate concrete is larger wholly than that of ordinary recycled aggregate concrete and with confining pressure reaching a certain value, the brittleness index remains stable.
