ABSTRACT

The main aim of the research is to study the mechanical properties of concrete and heir effects in concrete stability and failure.
He fractures mechanical properties in particular uniaxial tensile strength Ft, young’s modules Eo and fractures energy Gf as sell as the shape of the stress strain and the stress- deformation relation  were investigated for high strength and normal strength concrete. In order to analyzed failure mechanism of the entire fracture cement pasture and cement paste aggregative inferface) were calculated on the basis of the optical measurement an meso and micro level, respectively. These data showed a clear correlation with fracture properties of the concretes investigated.
The researcher that the mechanical properties of concrete is dependent on the quality of the individual ingredients size, shape, texture and grading of aggregate affect the mechanical properties of concrete. Rough textured and irregular shape- aggregated produced concrete with good mechanical properties. The use of moist aggregates enhance internal curing which promotes the hydration of cement and there by, enhancing the properties of the concrete.
