Abstract

A constitutive model based on classical plasticity theory for non‐linear analysis of concrete structures using finite elements is presented. The model uses the typical parameters of non‐associated [...]

Abstract

This paper extends the use of crack-tracking techniques within the smeared crack approach for the numerical simulation of cohesive–frictional damage on quasi-brittle materials. The [...]

Abstract

This paper discusses the finite element modeling of cracking in quasi-brittle materials. The problem is addressed via a mixed strain/displacement finite [...]

Abstract

In the present paper, a new d+/d damage model [...]

Abstract

This paper discusses the modeling of cracking in quasi-brittle materials using isotropic and orthotropic damage constitutive laws. A mixed strain/displacement [...]

Abstract

The out-of-plane response is a complex and at the same time key aspect of the seismic vulnerability of masonry structures. It depends on several factors, some of which are the material properties, the quality of the walls, the geometry of the structure, the connections between [...]
