Zum Einfluss der Belastungsfrequenz und der Spannungsgeschwindigkeit auf die Ermüdungsfestigkeit von Beton

Research output: Contribution to journalResearch articleContributedpeer-review



The fatigue behavior of concrete is mostly studied on the basis of constant amplitude tests. Constant maximum and minimum stresses are applied to concrete specimens during these tests. In addition, high loading frequencies are used in order to minimize the test duration. However, the loading frequency has an influence on the number of load cycles to failure. A study of fatigue tests documented in the literature has shown that the fatigue strength of concrete depends on the strain rate like the compressive strength due to single loading. With this consideration it becomes possible to convert test results with different loading frequencies into each other. Furthermore, a frequency limit can be determined depending on the stress range.
