Bond-Based Computational Mechanics Approach to Plain and Fibre Reinforced Concrete


The various “building blocks” of a computational mechanics approach to plain and steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) are briefly discussed. Experimental data are incorporated, as well. Theory and experiments deal with debond-ing as the leading mechanism of structural loosening.
