Modelling the effect of material composition on the tensile properties of concrete

Ł. Skarżyimageski and J. Tejchman,     Gdaimagesk University of Technology, Poland


This chapter presents the effect of micro-structure on the behaviour of plain concrete. Concrete was modelled as a random heterogeneous three-phase material. The 2D simulations were carried out with the finite element method using an isotropic damage constitutive model enhanced by a characteristic length of micro-structure by means of a non-local theory. The behaviour of notched ...
