The search for construction materials with enhanced properties such as strength,ductility, toughness and durability has lead to an increasing interest in materialslike fiber concrete and high-performance concrete. The limited knowledge aboutthe long-term behavior or the effects of repeated loading on the properties of thesematerials has caused a growing interest on the fatigue performance of concrete.Examples of such cyclic loads include machine vibration, sea waves, wind action,automobile traffic etc. Additionally, reliable data are needed for the calibration ofaccurate models capable of predicting the fatigue behavior of structural concrete.
