Experimental Investigation on Residual Strength of Plain Concrete under Fatigue Biaxial Compression with Constant Confined Stress
A model of attenuation of residual strength with number of cycles has been founded .In this model the constant confined stress and maximum stress of fatigue loading are both considered. 55 specimens of plain concrete are tested under biaxial compressive fatigue loading with constant confined stress. Based on the data of experiment, the coefficients of the model are determined. The residual strength attenuating curves are shown in the paper. The model can be used to predict the residual life of specimen under biaxial compressive loading with constant confined stress. The results of prediction show that the suggested method is better than the Miner rule.
