The results of an experimental study of a sudden change in loading rate on the fracture behavior of normal-and high-strength concrete specimens of three different sizes are reported. Geometrically similar three-point bend specimens were subjected to either a sudden 1000-fold increase or a 10-fold decrease of the loading rate. It was observed that for a large increase of the loading rate, the post-peak softening can be reversed to hardening followed by a second peak of the stress-strain diagram… CONTINUE READING
