Fracture mechanics of concrete has developed into an active field of research in the past decades. It promises a rational solution technique to structural problems in reinforced concrete in the limit state. Numerical tools have been developed on the basis of fracture mechanics theories. The question to be addressed is how much of the early promise, i.e. the promise of a powerful rational numerical tool having predictive capabilities, has come true, and whether additional research is needed in… CONTINUE READING
