Analysis of concrete structures by fracture mechanics: by L. Elfgren, Surendra Shah

By L. Elfgren, Surendra Shah

This booklet provides the newest examine findings of the quick constructing functions of fracture mechanics to concrete constructions. Key papers from top specialists within the box describe current and new modelling recommendations within the research of fabrics and buildings. The e-book explains the sensible program of fracture mechanics to structural modelling, bending, shear, bond and anchorage. The lawsuits of this RILEM Workshop can be a big reference for these engaged in layout, improvement, learn and educating within the box of concrete constructions.

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS There are theoretical solutions available for determination of the Stress Intensity Factors (SIF) at the tip of a kink emanating from a preexisting inclined crack (Horii and Nemat Nasser [9], Steif [10]). However, these solutions make assumptions of a straight kink and an infinite geometry. To account for curved kinks, and for finite dimensions of the specimens, finite element analysis was performed. The software used, FRacture ANalysis Code (FRANC), is an interactive workstation based program.

4 Single-edge-notched tensile specimen. (3) Thus the ratio σ1/σp can be calculated following (4) Eq. (4) determines the shape of the descending branch as function of the relative crack length a1/W. When the geometrical factor Y is known, the exact shape of the softening branch can be calculated. The present model is in fact similar to an R-curve type model, in which a gradual increase of KI is allowed for small crack lengths (in the current model when a1
