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

@article{Cusatis2003CONFINEMENTSHEARLM, title={CONFINEMENT-SHEAR LATTICE MODEL FOR CONCRETE DAMAGE IN TENSION AND COMPRESSION: II. COMPUTATION AND VALIDATION}, author={G. Cusatis and Z. Ba{\vz}ant and L. Cedolin}, journal={Journal of Engineering Mechanics-asce}, year={2003}, volume={129}, pages={1449-1458} }

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 uniaxial tests, biaxial tests, and triaxial tests, as well as notched tests of mode I fracture and size effect.
