A Plastic Damage Model for Practical Application
In this paper, an efficient method is proposed to determine the value of the parameters for the Plastic Damage Model previously proposed by authors. With the proposed method the users can get the value of all the model parameters if only know the uniaxial tension strength, compression strength and elastic modulus of the concrete material. Finally, through several numerical simulations it is proved that the proposed method is effective and the constitutive model using the parameters which determined by the proposed method has the capability of simulating typical nonlinear performances of concrete material.
