Abstract

%Prismatic concrete specimens with flared ends were subjected to up to 20 cycles of repeated loading of the magnitude of 83 to 100% of the short-time ultimate strength. These tests showed that concrete has a shakedown limit of about 90% of ultimate. It was concluded that repeated loads below the shake%down limit do not change the load carrying capacity of concrete as determined by single loading, but loads above this limit do damage the integrity of concrete.
