Abstract

The concepts associated with concrete crack formation and propagation is discussed in the light of fractal and probability theories. These concepts are employed to model the tortuous crack path in a highly heterogeneous medium of concrete. Fictitious Crack Model (FCM)[1] is extended to analyze plain concrete beams with such tortuous cracks. The parametric study has been carried out in order to obtain the influence of various fracture parameters on the beam response.
