CT Image Analysis on the Meso-Damage of Construction Waste Recycled Brick


Article Preview

Based on industrial CT technique, Meso-mechanical experiment was conducted on construction waste recycled brick to get the real-time CT image and stress-strain curve of brick during the loading process. Box counting method was used to calculate the fractal dimension of the inner pore transfixion and crack evolution. The results showed that lots of pore in the interfacial transition zone mainly resulted in the damage of the brick. With the increase of stress, the opening through-pore appeared and crack expanded, and the fractal dimension increased.
