Abstract: The deformation calculation formulas under long-term and different loading of prestressed steel reinforced concrete beams are built up by using age adjusted effective modulus method according to internal force equilibrium and strain harmony of section. Based on that, numerical methods are applied to calculate and analyze stress redistribution of steel and concrete, deformation of beam in different time slice, as well as the curves about how concrete strength, axial force, moment, volumetric percentage of steel and volumetric percentage of tendon affects mid-span deformation of long-term loading beam.

Abstract: To study the durability of reinforced concrete structures under coupling effect of load and environmental, an analog device is developed. Device includes sustained loading, accelerated environmental corrosion and measuring systems. The load applied to the column is real-time monitored by the pressure sensor and compensated according to the stiffness degradation and stress relaxation of column due to the rebar corrosion. Electrode is placed in the column so that the arrangement of the measuring instrument is not restricted. Device successfully realizes monitoring the time-varying mechanical performance degradation of reinforced concrete under the coupling effect of load and environment.
