Research at The University of Texas has been conducted to determine the properties and behavior of plain, high-strength concrete subjected to biaxial-cyclic compression. Static and dynamic tests were performed on a total of 95 specimens which consisted of 5-in. square x 12-in. thick plates of concrete. Tests were performed in a biaxial test machine developed at The University of Texas. The primary variables studies were the maximum stress level, expressed as a percent of the uniaxial-static compressive strength, and the biaxial stress ration, expressed as the ratio of the vertical to horizontal stress. Other variables included the stress range and the effect of the moisture content in the material.
