Crack Analysis in Structural Concrete: Theory and by Zihai Shi

By Zihai Shi

This new e-book at the fracture mechanics of concrete specializes in the newest advancements in computational theories, and the way to use these theories to resolve genuine engineering difficulties. Zihai Shi makes use of his wide learn event to give designated exam of multiple-crack research and mixed-mode fracture.

Compared with different mature engineering disciplines, fracture mechanics of concrete continues to be a constructing box with broad new learn and improvement. lately many various types and functions were proposed for crack research; the writer assesses those in flip, selecting their barriers and providing an in depth therapy of these that have been proved to be powerful by way of finished use.

After introducing tension singularity in numerical modelling and a few uncomplicated modelling concepts, the prolonged Fictitious Crack version (EFCM) for multiple-crack research is defined with numerical software examples. This theoretical version is then utilized to check very important matters in fracture mechanics - crack interplay and localization, and fracture modes and greatest rather a lot. The EFCM is then reformulated to incorporate the shear move mechanism on crack surfaces and the tactic is used to review experimental difficulties.

With a gently balanced mix of thought, test and alertness, Crack research in Structural Concrete is a vital contribution to this fast-developing box of structural research in concrete.

  • Latest theoretical types analysed and tested
  • Detailed evaluate of a number of crack research and multi-mode fractures
  • Applications designed for fixing real-life engineering problems
