Measurement of In Situ Stresses in Reinforced Concrete Columns

The development of dead load stresses in the columns of an eight-storey reinforced concrete structure during construction is reported. The in-situ steel and concrete stresses were measured respectively through acoustic gauges and a Carlson stress meter. Typical data on the development of steel strains are presented. The difficulties of interpreting the concrete stress meter readings are described. The influence of the construction process on the development of concrete stresses is shown. R.N. Swamy and M.M.A. Potter
