By Zihai Shi

This new ebook at the fracture mechanics of concrete specializes in the most recent advancements in computational theories, and the way to use these theories to unravel genuine engineering difficulties. Zihai Shi makes use of his broad learn event to provide specified exam of multiple-crack research and mixed-mode fracture.

Compared with different mature engineering disciplines, fracture mechanics of concrete remains to be a constructing box with broad new learn and improvement. lately many various versions and purposes were proposed for crack research; the writer assesses those in flip, making a choice on their obstacles and providing an in depth therapy of these that have been proved to be strong by way of complete use.

After introducing rigidity singularity in numerical modelling and a few uncomplicated modelling recommendations, the prolonged Fictitious Crack version (EFCM) for multiple-crack research is defined with numerical program examples. This theoretical version is then utilized to check very important matters in fracture mechanics - crack interplay and localization, and fracture modes and greatest quite a bit. The EFCM is then reformulated to incorporate the shear move mechanism on crack surfaces and the tactic is used to review experimental difficulties.

With a delicately balanced mix of concept, test and alertness, Crack research in Structural Concrete is a vital contribution to this fast-developing box of structural research in concrete.

  • Latest theoretical types analysed and tested
  • Detailed evaluation of a number of crack research and multi-mode fractures
  • Applications designed for fixing real-life engineering problems
