CONFINEMENT-SHEAR LATTICE MODEL FOR CONCRETE DAMAGE IN TENSION AND COMPRESSION: II. COMPUTATION AND VALIDATION

- G. Cusatis, Z. Bažant, L. Cedolin
- Materials Science
- 1 December 2003

The concrete material model developed in the preceding Part I of this study is formulated numerically. The new model is then verified by comparisons with experimental data for compressive and tensile… Expand

Fracture Mechanics of Reinforced Concrete

- Z. Bažant, L. Cedolin
- Mathematics
- 1980

The propagation of an element-wide blunt smeared crack band in a finite element mesh is analyzed. The results strongly depend on element size; e.g., a four times reduction in element size causes a… Expand

Confinement-Shear Lattice Model for Concrete Damage in Tension and Compression: I. Theory

- G. Cusatis, Z. Bažant, L. Cedolin
- Materials Science
- 1 August 2002

The mechanical behavior of the mesostructure of concrete is simulated by a three-dimensional lattice connecting the centers of aggregate particles. The model can describe not only tensile cracking… Expand

Temperature Effect on Concrete Creep Modeled by Microprestress-Solidification Theory

- Z. Bažant, G. Cusatis, L. Cedolin
- Materials Science
- 1 June 2004

The previously developed microprestress-solidification theory for concrete creep and shrinkage is generalized for the effect of temperature ~not exceeding 100°C!. The solidification model separates… Expand
