FRACTURE OF HARDENED CEMENT PASTE AND CONCRETE

THE PAPER REVIEWS LITERATURE ON WORK IN THE FIELD OF FRACTURE MECHANICS OF HARDENED CEMENT PASTE, CEMENT MORTAR AND CONCRETE FROM THE VERY BEGINNING IN 1929. APPLICATIONS OF GRIFFITH'S THEORY FOR FRACTURE OF BRITTLE SOLIDS TO HETEROGENEOUS COMPOSITE CEMENT AND CONCRETE MATERIALS IS DISCUSSED. EXPERIMENTAL DATA ON FRACTURE PARAMETERS FROM PREVIOUS WORK BY OTHERS IS TABULATED AND COMPARED. MACROSCOPIC FRACTURE MECHANISM AND CRACK PATTERNS OF CEMENT PASTE AND CONCRETE IN TENSION AND COMPRESSION, AS WELL AS MICROSOCPIC ASPECTS OF FRACTURE MECHANISM IN CEMENT PASTE, ARE DISCUSSED. /AUTHOR/
