Composite Material of Concrete Meso-Failure Test
With static and dynamic load for the research background, this paper conducted a four-phase composite model for concrete damage test simulation of micro-mechanics. The two kinds of three-point bending beam load ware studied in case of failure process. The study found that the location of the main crack in the most disadvantaged section of beam shear in the vicinity. Crack is always along the aggregate and the mortar bond zone be extended. The main crack extension direction is always toward the load point. The main crack is showing a tortuous shape. Dynamic load and static load the stress - strain curve is basically similar shape, but basically the same as the starting point of the initial fracture. Stress wave in the sample after multiple visits, is the main reason leading to the breakdown of the sample. Dynamic load cases, the concrete elastic modulus higher than the static modulus of elasticity, numerical simulation results agree well with the experimental results.
