Fracture Mechanics of Concrete and Concrete Structures

23-26 juin 2019
Université de Pau et des Pays de l'Adour Campus de la Nive - Bayonne (France)

Many conferences include discussions of damage, cracking and fracture of concrete, but mostly outside the context of fracture mechanics. Other conferences cover the subject of fracture mechanics, but rarely focused on its application to concrete and concrete structures. IA-FraMCoS was founded to help fill this gap. Concrete is an archetypical quasibrittle material. It consists of brittle constituents and is characterized by a non-negligible material characteristic length, which endows the material with a behavior that is transitional between the stress-strain relations for distributed damage at small scales and linear elastic fracture mechanics at large scales. This transitional behavior poses difficult challenges for theoretical, experimental and computational research.
