Mechanical Behavior and Constitutive Equation of Concrete under High-Temperature Dynamical Conditions


Article Preview

SPHB tests of concrete under different temperatures and various loading conditions are completed, and high-temperature dynamical behavior of concrete is obtained. Dynamical mechanical behavior of concrete with high temperature is affected by not only the strain rate effect, but also the high temperature weakening effect, and the strain rate hardening effect is coupled with high temperature weakening effect, but the latter has greater influence. Concrete failure evolution is described on basis of the damage factor, the intercoupling strain rate hardening effect and temperature weakening effect are simply set as mutually independent factors, each parameter is respectively fitted with test data, finally, concrete constitutive equation under high-temperature dynamical conditions is established, and comparative analysis with test data are conducted, indicating good coincidence with test results.
