Paper Title:
Mechanical Modal and Numerical Simulation of Fracture Process of Block Wall
  Abstract

Aerated concrete is a typical non-uniform quasi-brittle materials, the fracture process is very complicated. To slove the problem of cracks in this block walls, a practical analytical method was proposed based on the vertical mortar joint model to solve the equivalent fracture toughness (the critical value which the crack occurred to spread unstable) With the use of the basic principle of composite material mechanics and linear elastic fracture mechanics. Against the results of the related experiments, the standard deviation and the coefficient of variation of Analytical Solution are smaller, , and the equivalent fracture toughness is the effective fracture parameters of independent of specimen size. So the suggested method is more feasible and applicable, which can forecast autoclaved aerated concrete block wall’s cracking and destroying.
