oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Some investigations into the elastic properties of concrete

Volume 6, Issue 9
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The paper descriptionbes a series of tests and the results carried out on about 100 concrete specimens in the laboratories of the University of Cape Town. Each batch of specimens was made from the same mix so that the concrete might be regarded as identical in each of the batches. The basis of the tests was cube strength and to this the Authors have correlated Young's Modulus (in compression and tension), column strength, tensile strength and modulus of rupture. Stress-strain curves for concrete in compression and in tension are submitted.
