Considerations for Design of Concrete Structures Subjected to Fatigue Loading
|Publication Date:||1 January 1992|
Objective and scope
This report is intended to provide information that will serve as a guide for design for concrete structures subjected to fatigue loading.
However, this report does not contain the type of detailed design procedures sometimes found in guides.
Chapter 2 presents information on the fatigue strength of concrete and reinforcing materials. This information has been obtained from reviews of experimental investigations reported in technical literature or from unpublished data made available to the committee. The principal aim has been to summarize information on factors influencing fatigue strength that are of concern to practicing engineers.
Chapter 3 considers the application of information on concrete and reinforcing materials to beams and pavements. Provisions suitable for inclusion in a design specification are recommended.
An Appendix to this report contains extracts from current specifications that are concerned with fatigue.
