Whitney Rectangular Stress Distribution s15

Definition of Whitney Rectangular Stress Distribution In the 1930s, Whitney (1937) proposed the use of a rectangular compressive stress distribution to replace the parabolic stress distribution. As shown in Figure 1, an average stress of 0.85f'c is used with a rectangle of depth a = 1c. Whitney determined that 1 should be 0.85 for concrete

All Answers ( 7) In Europe we would consider 28 days compressive strength of 55 MPa on cylinders and 67 MPa on cubes (C 55/67). This corresponds to your upper values in psi. To answer also the rest of your question, according to several authors UHPC should start at 150 MPa fc,cube at 28 days. However, I also saw 140 MPa and sometimes even a bit lower.

Compressive strength - Wikipedia

The compressive strength of concrete is given in terms of the characteristic compressive strength of 150 mm size cubes tested at 28 days (fck). The characteristic strength is defined as the strength of the concrete below which not more than 5% of the test results are expected to fall.

The Effect of Aggregate Properties on Concrete

The compressive aggregate strength is an important factor in the selection of aggregate. When determining the strength of normal concrete, most concrete aggregates are several times stronger than the other components in concrete and therefore not a factor in the strength of normal strength concrete.

Characteristics of Compressive Stress Distribution in High ...

Concrete in the compression zone is subjected to a stress distribution, called the stress block, that follows the stress-strain relationship of a concrete cylinder tested in axial compression. This paper describes fundamental characteristics of the compressive stress distribution in the compression zone of flexural members with concrete compressive strengths up to 18 ksi (124 MPa).
