This work presents a new constitutive model that captures the experimentally demonstrated confinement and moisture-dependent behaviour of concrete when heated under multiaxial mechanical load.

Updated 12 March 2020

In this presentation, from the 21st Young Researchers Conference, Giacomo Torelli of the University of Cambridge discusses:

  • Industrial context of his research
  • Main features of thermal expansion of concrete
  • Confinement-dependent thermal strain model
  • Mositure-dependent thermal strain model
  • Conclusions

A confinement and moisture dependent constitute model for concrete subjected to transient high temps
