Improved formulation for compressive fatigue strength of concrete

  1. 1. 07-10-2015 Challenge the future Delft University of Technology Improved Formulation for Compressive Fatigue Strength of Concrete Dr. Eva Lantsoght, Dr. Cor van der Veen, Dr. Ane de Boer
  2. 2. 2Improved formulation for compressive fatigue strength of concrete Overview • Literature survey • Parameters • HSC • Code provisions • Database • Proposal • For design • For existing structures • Comparison methods & experiments • Summary Failed specimens: a,b: gravel concrete: c,d: limestone concrete (Hordijk et al., 1995)
  3. 3. 3Improved formulation for compressive fatigue strength of concrete Literature survey Introduction • Cycles of loading • => fc decreases • With S-N curve • +- linear from 100 cycles (Kim & Kim, 1996) • Proposal necessary • inconsistency in Dutch NA Typical S-N line for concrete in compression (CEB Com GTG 15, 1998) σmax/fcm Log(s)72 3 4 5 61 8 0,9 0,8 0,7 0,6 C.L.=confidence limit
  4. 4. 4Improved formulation for compressive fatigue strength of concrete Literature survey Important parameters • Smin: increased, then Smax increased • Rest periods: increased N • Frequency f: • above Smax = 0,75 : N decreases as f decreases • Accelerated fatigue tests: overestimate N σ-ε of the envelopes for concrete under cycles of compression (Fehling et al., 2013) σ/fc ε/εcu 1,2 1,0 0,8 0,6 0,4 0,2 0 0 1 2 3 4

  6. 6. 6Improved formulation for compressive fatigue strength of concrete Literature survey Fatigue high strength concrete • Conclusion fib task group 8.2, 2008: • HPC: lower fatigue limit compared to NSC • Because of lower w/c ratio • “one has not yet succeeded in finding adequate design rules for the fatigue behavior taking into consideration the special properties of HPC”
  7. 7. 7Improved formulation for compressive fatigue strength of concrete Current code provisions Model Code 2010, fck in formulas, γc = 1,5 EC 2-2: very conservative, γc = 1,5 EC 2-2+NA: mismatch at Ni = 106, γc = 1,35 Kim & Kim: influence of fc’ , γc = 1,5
