[T.sub.s] is the tensile force of vertical reinforcement in the tensile constraint zone which can be defined as [T.sub.s] = [[sigma].sub.s][A.sub.s], where [[sigma].sub.s] is the tensile stress of vertical reinforcements in the constraint zone which can be defined as [[sigma].sub.s] = [E.sub.s][[epsilon].sub.ccu][l.sub.e]/[l.sub.s2]([h.sub.w0][beta]/x - 1) from (6), where [[epsilon].sub.ccu] is the ultimate compressive strain of confined concrete; [beta] is the coefficient corresponding to the rectangular stress block, refer to China code "Code for design of concrete structures (GB 50010-2010, 2010)"; x is the depth of the compressive zone in rectangular stress block which can be defined as x = [x.sub.u][[beta].sub.1].
There are maximum compressive strain point, compressive-tensile cutoff point, and tensile strain peak point for the radial strain of CSM and AC structure models obviously.
The applied biaxial strain was intended to oppose the thermally induced compressive strain and subsequent out-of-plane deformation related to wrinkling, causing the distortions to disappear gradually.
The highest recovery rate of the auxetic scaffolds subjected to 10% compressive strain was approximately 23.2% in the 15 min compression stimuli cycle.
Due to the nanoparticle residing in the matrix cavity which is too small, the matrix atoms are not being able to move rapidly enough to accommodate the growing nanoparticle, which results in the compressive strain on the nanoparticle.
The resulting compressive strain of the swollen rubber was measured using a linear transducer The network chain density of the rubber was calculated using equation 1 (ref.
The curves in Figure 8 indicated that the value of compressive strain for CFRP-strengthened RC strut was lower than that of the ordinary strut.
Then, the axial compressive strain [epsilon] was applied to the models by incrementally displacing the top end atoms in the negative axial direction while the bottom end atoms were fixed.
Figure 3 shows the pronounced effect of compressive strain on compressive stress over an SF range of 0.25-6.
[17] concluded that the addition of steel fiber in concrete improves the compressive strain and peak stress of SFRC significantly.
where [[sigma].sub.c] is the compressive stress of the concrete, [f'.sub.cc] is the compression strength of the concrete, [[epsilon]'.sub.c] is the compressive strain, and [[epsilon]'.sub.cc] is the compressive strain corresponding with [f'.sub.cc].
By comparing the stress values of the two sets of elastic buckling specimens ([L.sub.u]/[d.sub.sf_Is.sup.e] equal to 45 and 50), the average compression stress was a function of [r.sub.sf.sup.-] (when the compressive strain was -0.016) and basically independent of [L.sub.u]/ [d.sub.sf_Is.sup.e].
