The goal of the experiment was to determine the influence that cyclic loading has on concrete dynamic modulus of elasticity and compressive strength. Each test specimen was subjected to cyclic loading with the loading force equivalent to one third of the expected compressive strength value similarly to the static modulus of elasticity test with the difference that the total number of loading cycles was 3000. The dynamic modulus of elasticity was determined on every specimen before and after loading by means of the ultrasonic pulse velocity test and resonance method. The result of the experiment is the degree to which the dynamic modulus of elasticity decreased after multiple cyclic loading. A decrease was observed in all specimens.
