Fracture and Size Effect in Concrete and Other Quasibrittle Materials

Why Fracture Mechanics? Historical Perspective Reasons for Fracture Mechanics Approach Sources of Size Effect on Structural Strength Quantification of Fracture Mechanics Size Effect Experimental… Expand

Crack band theory for fracture of concrete

A fracture theory for a heterogenous aggregate material which exhibits a gradual strain-softening due to microcracking and contains aggregate pieces that are not necessarily small compared to… Expand

Mechanics of solid materials

- Z. Bažant
- Materials Science
- 1 February 1992

Description: Elasticity, plasticity, damage mechanics and cracking are all phenomena which determine the resistance of solids to deformation and fracture. The authors of this book discuss a modern… Expand

Size Effect in Blunt Fracture: Concrete, Rock, Metal

- Z. Bažant
- Mathematics
- 1 April 1984

The fracture front in concrete, as well as rock, is blunted by a zone of microcracking, and in ductile metals by a zone of yielding. This blunting causes deviations from the structural size effect… Expand

Creep and shrinkage prediction model for analysis and design of concrete structures-model B3

- Z. Bažant, W. P. Murphy
- Materials Science
- 1 July 1995

A model for the characterization of concrete creep and shrinkage in the design of concrete structures is recommended. It is simplier, agrees better with the experimental data and is justified better… Expand

Stability of Structures: Elastic, Inelastic, Fracture, and Damage Theories

- Z. Bažant, L. Cedolin, J. Hutchinson
- Materials Science, Mathematics
- 1 June 1993

Concrete at High Temperatures: Material Properties and Mathematical Models

- Z. Bažant, M. F. Kaplan
- Materials Science
- 1 June 1996

Introduction. PART I (written by M K Kaplan) 1. Composition and structure of hardened Portland cement paste. 2. Temperature effects on chemical composition, pore water and physical structures of… Expand

Nonlocal integral formulations of plasticity and damage : Survey of progress

- Z. Bažant, M. Jirásek
- Mathematics, Materials Science
- 1 November 2002

Modeling of the evolution of distributed damage such as microcracking, void formation, and softening frictional slip necessitates strain-softening constitutive models. The nonlocal continuum concept… Expand

Nonlocal damage theory

- G. Pijaudier-Cabot, Z. Bažant
- Mathematics
- 1 October 1987

In the usual local finite element analysis, strain softening causes spurious mesh sensitivity and incorrect convergence when the element is refined to vanishing size. In a previous continuum… Expand

Scaling of structural strength

- Z. Bažant
- Materials Science
- 1 September 2003

Introduction Asymptotic Analysis of Size Effect Randomness and Disorder Energetic Scaling for Sea Ice and Concrete Structures Energetic Scaling of Compression Fracture and Further Applications to… Expand
