This dataset contains the results from tests of unreinforced concrete elements loaded in uniaxial compression. The data are organized to facilitate comparison of the strengths of prismatic and nonprismatic (bottle) struts. Data were obtained solely from published papers. These papers are not attached as reports due to copyrights of the respective publishers.

This dataset has been added to since its creation. See below for a summary of additions.
