The Study of the Crack-Resistant Plaster Mortar of Sand Autolaved Aerated Concrete Blocks
In view of the problems of crack and falling off when using ordinary mortar aerated concrete blocks, this paper investigate the plaster mortar of sand aerated concrete blocks. On the basis of single
Mix Ratio Test and Basic Property Analysis for Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) Block
Through the mix ratio optimization test, the appropriate autoclaved aerated concrete block may be prepared for the production demand, whose technical indexes could satisfy the requirement of national
Assessment of Destructive Impact of Different Factors on Concrete Structures Durability
The article presents the effects of an incorrect analysis of selected factors resulting in the occurrence of faults significantly influencing the possibility of safe use of the objects.


Crack Development in Cementitious Materials under Impact Loading
Flexural specimens of hardened cement paste, fibre reinforced concrete, and conventionally reinforced concrete were tested in an instrumented dropweight impact machine, employing a 345 kg mass impact
Strain Rate Effects on Concrete and Reinforcements, and their Contributions to Structures
This paper deals with the rate effects on concrete and reinforcements, especially unfavorable effects for the dynamic design of concrete or reinforced concrete structures. The rate effects on
Controlled Dynamic Cracking of High‐Strength Concrete Specimens
A new method of studying the dynamic development of microcracks in hardened cement paste (HCP) plates subjected to dynamic load sources was developed by Avnon and Yankelevsky in 1991. This method is
Continuum Damage Mechanics Studies on the Dynamic Fracture of Concrete
The dynamic fracture of concrete in tension is studied by applying a continuum damage model developed by the author and his coworkers [1–3]. In this model, the degree of damage in concrete
Effect of the Loading rate on the Tensile strength of Concrete
The knowledge of the loading rate influence on the tensile strength of concrete is of considerable importance in engineering practice. The safety of several concrete structures subjected to impact
Strain Rate Effects on the Tensile Strength of Concrete as Predicted by Thermodynamic and Fracture Mechanics Models
Models are presented and discussed which predict the influence of stress rate or strain rate on the tensile strength of concrete. Three of them are based on linear fracture mechanics and two on
