Paper Title:
Fracture Analysis for a 2D Prototype of Recycled Aggregate Concrete Using Discrete Cracking Model
  Abstract

Fracture analysis has been made for a 2 dimensional prototype of recycled aggregate concrete using the discrete cracking model. The discrete element method has been developed based on quasi-brittle constitutive law to simulate the behavior of the 2 dimensional recycled aggregate concrete prototype under uniaxial compressive loading. The relationship between stress distribution and failure mechanism of the recycled aggregate concrete plate has been investigated and analyzed. The numerical model proposed in the paper is in the first time used to analyze the mechanical properties of recycled aggregate concrete. Efficiency and accuracy of the numerical model has been demonstrated. It is indicated that this model has potential to be extended for 3 dimensional structural analysis of recycled aggregate concrete.
