Mechanical Properties and Failure Criteria of Concrete under Biaxial Tension and Compression
Utilizing the large static-dynamic triaxial test system, 7 proportional loading biaxial tensile and compressive tests of concrete were conducted. The proportional loading paths are 0 (uniaxial compression), -0.05, -0.1, -0.15, -0.2, -0.25 and ∞ (uniaxial tension). Compressive and tensile strength were measured as well as the strains at two loading directions. Considering the ratio to tension and compression, failure criteria of ordinary concrete under biaxial tension and compression was established, which has a good agreement with test value.
