Analysis on Coupling Damage of Liquid Rubber Based Concrete under Fatigue and Impact Loading
In this paper coupling damage behaviors of Liquid Rubber Based Concrete (LRBC) are studied experimentally. Compressive fatigue and impact alternant loading tests were carried out on cylindrical LRBC specimens. The elastic moduli were recorded before and after fatigue and impact tests. The quasi-static compressive stress-strain curves after fatigue and impact tests were obtained. According to the definition of dissipated energy, the cumulating of dissipated energy was used to define damage. The analysis on impact and fatigue damages during the loading processes show that fatigue and impact loading lead to the formation and development of inner damage. During the alternant loading process, impact and fatigue damages are coupled mutually, with the former affects the evolution of fatigue damage evidently.
