Concrete stress-strain curve

mohamedlamine's picture

The concrete stress-strain curve corresponds to the compression case with negative values plotted on positive axis. If one needs to plot the tensile curve for this concrete material this will be almost similar with {0.1*compression} stresses with positive values. Furthermore if one needs to plot on the same axis the tensile steel and concrete stresses for a composite mixture he needs to consider this last case. Fortunately the tensile and compression steel stresses are quite similar with opposite values. But the consideration of these published existing stresses for these two materials is only for the compression case.
