The main results of about 25 compressive tests, comprising green environmentally friendly concrete, are presented. The compressive stress – strain curve is modelled by means of the analytical expression in CEB-FIP MC 1990. A total of 5 different concrete types are tested with strengths spanning from 30 to 60 MPa. The relationship between compressive strength and elastic modulus is found to be in good agreement with the codes.
Key words: compressive stress – strain curves, elastic modulus, compressive strengths.
