ADVANCED TOPICS IN INELASTICITY AND FAILURE OF CONCRETE

Recent developments in physical-mathematical models for studying the mechanical behavior of concrete are explained. The models are based on a systematic application of the mechanics of continuous media, as well as the thermodynamics of the mechanism causing inelastic phenomena on the microstructural level. Attention is focused on non-linear, multiaxial behavior of concrete, as well as creep, shrinkage, and the effects of moisture migration and temperature changes. The book consists of 6 sections. The first section, Non-Linear Triaxial Behaviour and Failure, reviews cartesian tensor factors, variable tangent moduli and secant moduli, plasticity, dilatancy, endochronic theory rate-dependent viscoelasticity. The second section discusses special problems in non-linear multiaxial behavior. The next four sections discuss creep as age- dependent viscoplasticity, the effects of humidity and temperature on long-term reformations, fundamental problems in non-linear structural analysis, and basic problems in creep structural analysis.
