Numerical Simulation of Fracture Propagation of Concrete on Meso-Level
In the paper, concrete on meso-level is taken as three phases composites consisting of aggregate、matrix and bond between matrix and aggregate. Model and arithmetic of Interface Element Method (IEM) is introduced and used to study the fracture characteristic and process of concrete under uniaxial load.
