Paper Title:
Meso-Scale Simulation of Concrete: Blast and Penetration Effects and AAR Degradation
  Abstract

The study of concrete dam subjected to extreme loading conditions require theadoption of accurate constitutive equations. In this paper some recent results on the meso-scalesimulation of blast and penetration e ects on concrete will be discussed. The adopted meso-scale constitutive equation is the so-called Lattice Discrete Particle Model (LDPM) recentlyformulated at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. LDPM can accurately describe the macroscopicbehavior of quasi-brittle materials, and especially concrete, during elastic, fracturing, softening,and hardening regimes. Tensile dominated experimental tests under both dynamic conditionswere numerically simulated. After presenting examples of simulations relevant to quasi-staticand dynamic concrete behavior, LDPM simulation of the e ect of air blast pressure, on concretewill be discussed. Finally, the problem of the extrapolations of laboratory tests to actual in-situconditions is also presented.
