Poisson’s Ratio of High-Performance Concrete.

Persson, Bertil LU (1999) In Cement and Concrete Research 29(10). p.1647-1653
Abstract
This article outlines an experimental and numerical study on Poisson’s ratio of High Performance Concrete, HPC, subjected to air or sealed curing. Eight qualities of concrete (about 100 cylinders and 900 cubes) were studied, young and in the mature state. The concretes contained between 5 and 10% silica fume, and two concretes in addition contained air-entrainment. Parallel studies of strength and internal relative humidity were carried out. The results indicate that Poisson’s ratio of HPC is slightly smaller than that of Normal Strength Concrete, NSC. Analyses of the influence of maturity, type of aggregate and moisture on Poisson’s ratio are also presented. The project was carried out from 1991 to 1998.
