Reinforced Concrete

Objective

The objective of this proposed research is to capture concrete’s fracture behavior and structure-propety relationships using multiscale modelling and FEA simulations in an effort to bridge the information provided from each length scale up to a concrete continuum model.

Continuum Scale

Meso Scale

Three representative volume element (RVE) cubes, shown in Figure 1, will be used, each of a different size and including various inclusion types. These RVE cubes will be used in mesoscale finite element simulations using Abaqus software, boundary conditions consisting of displacement/strain information provided from the macroscale simulations and applied to lower and lower length scales. The information obtained from these simulations determines the structure property relationships within the concrete at lower length scales and provides the desired information on mechanical properties, concrete failure, fracture behavior, and damage evolution.
