Title:Mechanism of fatigue failure in concrete
Author(s):Murdock, John W.; Kesler, Clyde E.
Contributor(s):Illinois. The Division of Highways; U.S. Department of Commerce. Bureau of Public Roads
Subject(s):Fatigue Failure
Mechanical Engineering
Abstract:The phenomenon of fatigue has been known to exist in concrete for almost a half-century, and several investigations have determined the extent to which service-encountered variables affect the fatigue behavior of the material. None of the previous investigations have attempted to determine the mechanism of fatigue failures; none have sought to find where the failure begins and how it develops. The purpose of this investigation is to take the first steps to find the answer to these fundamental questions.
