Abstract
The thesis presents results from a project dealing with ductility in high performance concrete structures. The main objectives were to investigate the material and structural ductility/brittleness of prestressed structural elements of High Performance Concrete (HPC). The aim was to get a better understanding of the fracture process and to study sudden and brittle failures formed by shear stresses. The project was split into three parts: (I) Torsion of cylindrical pole elements, (II) Shear, torsion and bending of hollow core slabs, and (III) Shear, torsion and bending of cylindrical pole elements. Laboratory investigations were performed and displacements were ca...
