Figure 11.1. Design stress-strain relations for concrete in compression

The maximum stress in the diagram is obtained by multiplying the characteristic cylinder strength with a sustained loading factor of 0.85 and dividing by a material safety factor of 1.5, so that fcd = 0.57fck. For normal density concrete the sustained loading factor is defined to be 1, unless ac [MPa]
