Paper Title:
A Model to Predict Fatigue Life of Concrete Based on Total Strain Energy Density
  Abstract

A law on the cumulative damage is presented basing on total strain energy induced as damage parameter to calculate the cumulative damage when the specimens of concrete subjected to fatigue loading.Then the maximum of critical cumulative damage and location of production are determined basing on the equation of cumulative fatigue damage combined with experimental result through using the finite element analysis and the critical plane method in fatigue analysis.The relation equation between the standardized critical total strain energy density and stress level is obtained by considering the impact of loading level.The fatigue life of specimens can be predicted by combining the equation of cumulative fatigue damage with the relation equation of damage and stress level and the prediction results coincide with experimental results very well.
