Paper Title:
3D Lattice Fracture Model: Application to Cement Paste at Microscale
  Abstract

The fracture processes in cement paste at microscale are simulated by the 3D lattice fracture model based on the microstructure of hydrating cement paste. The uniaxial tensile test simulation is carried out to obtain the load-displacement diagram and microcracks propagation for a Portland cement paste specimen in the size of 100×100×100 µm3 at the degree of hydration 69%. The Young's modulus, tensile strength, strain at peak load and fracture energy are computed on the basis of the load-displacement diagram.
