Experimental investigation of adhesive-based self-healing of cementitious materials
This paper presents the results of a series of self-healing experiments conducted on reinforced mortar beams containing adhesive-filled glass reservoirs. An overview of the findings of theExpand
Evaluation of strains at peak stresses in concrete: A three-phase composite model approach
Abstract A wide range of concretes was evaluated to explain the reasons for large strain values of high strength concretes (HSCs) at peak stresses under different loading conditions, such as uniaxialExpand
A new system for crack closure of cementitious materials using shrinkable polymers
This paper presents details of an original crack-closure system for cementitious materials using shrinkable polymer tendons. The system involves the incorporation of unbonded pre-oriented polymerExpand
A new model for simulating cracks in cementitious composites
A new model for simulating cracks in cementitious composites using embedded planes with local plasticity is presented. In the model it is assumed that the embedded planes of degradation (PODs) canExpand
Three dimensional finite element simulations of fracture tests using the craft concrete model
Two enhancements to a recently developed plastic-damage-contact model for concrete are presented. The model itself, which uses planes of degradation that can undergo damage and separation but thatExpand
Self-healing concrete full-scale site trials
© 2016, A.A. Balkema Publishers. All rights reserved. The development of a self-healing concrete aimed at improving the durability of concrete structures has been the focus of Materials for LifeExpand
A method for testing self-healing mortar beams with embedded capillary tubes of glue is reported. The findings from a series of trial tests with different amounts of conventional reinforcement,Expand
A coupled thermo-hygro-chemical model for characterising autogenous healing in ordinary cementitious materials
Experimental work has demonstrated that cracks can be healed in ordinary cementitious materials in the presence of water. The primary healing mechanisms are hydration of the unreacted nuclei ofExpand
Craft - a plastic-damage-contact model for concrete II. Model implementation with implicit return-mapping algorithm and consistent tangent matrix
A computational strategy for the evaluation of stresses in a finite element implementation of a new plastic-damage-contact model is described. As part of this strategy a new return-mapping algorithmExpand
A plastic-damage constitutive model for the finite element analysis of fibre reinforced concrete
A unique constitutive model for fibre reinforced concrete (FRC) is presented, which combines a number of mechanics-based sub models for the simulation of directional cracking, rough crack contact andExpand
