Meso-scale finite element modeling of concrete damage under fatigue loading

Meso-scale finite element modeling of concrete damage under fatigue loading

Leaders:  Udo Nackenhorst
Team:  Mohammed Hammad
Year:  2018
Sponsors:  DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service)

Within the scope of this project, the mechanism of concrete damage under cyclic loading conditions will be invistigated at the meso-scale. At this scale, concrete will be considered as non-homogeneous three-phase composite material which consists of cement matrix (mortar), aggregates and interfacial transition zone (ITZ).
