Effect of compressive loads on the tensile strength of concrete at high strain rates

This paper describes the behaviour of concrete subjected to tensile loads at high strain rates with and without compressive load histories. The tests, carried out at the laboratory of building materials of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich, show a considerable deterioration of the tensile strength due to initially applied compressive loads.
