Abstract
Global warming and the increasing emissions of CO2, has led among other systems that minimize the consumption of energy and thermal comfort, construction in structures and thermoactive systems. The Model Code 2010 establishes a model of the effect of temperature on the compressive, flexural and tensile strength for normal concretes, but this model only takes into account the effect of temperature, thus neglecting the age of the concrete, as well as the effect produced by thermal cycles over time [3]. This article examines the behavior of concrete when subjected to thermal cycles, thus, imitating the process of thermal loading and unloading in thermo-activated structures, throughout their in-use period. Cylindrical specimens have been performed to study the behavior to compression and tensile strength, and prismatic specimens were performed to flexural test strength. The results obtained have been compared with the models established in the model code 2010, being able to observe large differences between them. We can therefore conclude that the models established in the model code do not describe the behavior of concrete subjected to thermal cycles.
