    Crack Propagation in Concrete Using Meshless Method

    N. Sageresan, R. Drathi

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.32, No.2, pp. 103-112, 2008, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2008.032.103

    Abstract Crack propagation in concrete is computed with a simplified meshless method. The material is elastic of Neo-Hookian type until fracture. Then a discrete cohesive crack method is used. In the cohesive crack method, cohesive segments are introduced at the meshless nodes. No representation of the crack surface is needed. The method is well-suited for concrete since concrete develops many cracks. Mesh independent results are obtained due to the cohesive model that takes into account the correct energy dissipation during crack opening. We show the accuracy of our method by comparison to experimental data. More >
