Conference paper


In the case that reinforced concrete structures are subjected to repeated impulsive bending load, it is important to clarify the fatigue strength and the fatigue life of R/C members under repeated impulsive bending load. In this paper, a method estimating the fatigue life of the brittle materials, such as concrete and rock, is shown on the basis of the test results of cement-mortar beams under repeated impulsive bending load.
