Strength Criteria for Concrete
A new proposed third order polynomial strength criterion, based on tensorial function theory of continuum mechanics, has been used to determine the strength parameters for concrete. A straight-forward computer program to determine the parameters and plot the strength envelope has been developed. A favorable correlation between theoretical and experimental results is observed.
