ConMat'09 - 4th International Conference on Construction Materials

The purpose of this paper is to investigate experimentally the UHPFRC time-dependent behavior under sustained tensile loading and to determine the effect of the stress level on the creep response. Uniaxial tensile creep tests were performed at various stress levels by means of an optimized testing set-up. An Acoustic Emissions equipment was used in parallel to correlate the creep deformations with damage. From 29 % to 85 % stress level, the material exhibited a linear viscoelastic behavior. The UHPFRC response under higher stress levels close to strain hardening remains an open question.
