Paper Title:
State-of-the-Art Review on Concrete Softening Curve
  Abstract

The cohesive crack model is widely employed to the fracture analysis of concrete for mode I crack. The tension softening relationship is a very important constitutive law in the cohesive crack model. The determination methods of tension softening relationship of concrete are introduced in this paper which are direct tension methods, J-integral method and inverse analysis method. Meanwhile, those simplified softening curves including linear form and nonlinear form are summarized.
