Paper Title:
Simulation of Multiscale Time and Space in Fracture Process of Three-Point-Bending Concrete Beam with Offset Notch
  Abstract

In order to accurately analyze the dynamic damage process of three-point-bending concrete beam with offset notch, the multiscale numerical model of time and space by coupling Discrete Element Method (DEM) and Finite Element Method (FEM) of three-point-bending concrete beam with offset notch was established. Using the multiscale numerical model of three-point-bending concrete beam, the generating and the extending processes and rules of cracks in concrete beam under condition of different offset distances of notch were analyzed at macro- and meso-levels. The simulated results are in accordant with the experimental ones. Comparing the computation time of the multiscale model and that of the DEM model in the example of three-point-bending concrete beam, the former accomplished the heterogeneous mesoscopic simulations of the latter, at the same time, the former was much more efficient than the latter.
