Abstract : Eight reinforced concrete ring specimens constructed of intermediate grade reinforcing steel and average strength concrete were uniformly loaded by 36 hydraulic rams placed around the rings at 10 degree increments. All rings were tested to failure. The failure modes were compression in the concrete and radial tension. The specimens that failed in compression all withstood higher loads than predicted by theoretical techniques. (Author)
