As it is now generally accepted, finite element analysis of distributed softening damage in quasi-brittle structures such as concrete structures cannot be based on a classical, that is, local, constitutive model of the material. Such a model Introduces incorrect excessive localizations, spurious size effect and spurious mesh sensitivity in finite element… CONTINUE READING
