|Abstract:||The creep behaviour of concrete test specimens of three different mix proportions and strength levels was studied at various sustained stress levels. The experimental results of short-term sustained loading tests were analysed to provide a quantitative description of the observed behaviour. The creep behaviour of normal- and high-strength concrete specimen has reached the point of creep was compared. A method based on the variation of differential strain ratio (the rate of change of transverse strain with respect to axial strain) for determining whether a concrete specimen has reached the point of creep fracture is proposed. Test results showed that the stress - strength ratio of the creep strength of concrete increased with the strength of concrete. The transverse and axial strains of concrete at this critical stress - strength ratio did not vary much with the strength of concrete, but averaged about 320-350 and 1430-1470 microstrain respectively.|
