Abstract

The aim of this study is to investigate how internal damage induced by freezing-thawing action affects mechanical behavior of plain concrete and reinforced concrete members. That is, in this paper, mechanical behavior of concrete with initial damage caused by compression loading, bond behavior of rebar embedeed in concrete, mechanical behavior of reinforced concrete beams after freezing-thawing test are discussed. Finally, it is concluded that the initial damage greatly affects compressive strength of plain concrete, and ultimate load and failure mode of RC beam was strongly influenced with the result of strength reduction of concrete and/or bond deterioration of rebar.
