Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThe new theory presented in the preceding paper, which models the dynamic comminution of concrete due to very high shear strain rate, is now compared to recent test data on the penetration of projectiles through concrete walls of different thicknesses, ranging from 127 to 254 mm. These data are analyzed by an explicit finite element code using the new microplane constitutive model M7 for concrete, which was previously shown to provide the most realistic description of the quasistatic uni, bi and triaxial test data with complex loading path and unloading. Model M7 incorporates the quasistatic strain rate effects due viscoelasticity and to the rate of cohesive crack debonding based on activation energy of bond ruptures, which are expected to extend to very high rates. Here model M7 is further enhanced by apparent viscosity capturing the energy dissipation due to the strainrate effect of comminution. The maximum shear strain rates in the computations are of the order of 10(5) s(1). The simulations document that, within the inevitable uncertainties, the measured exit velocities of the projectiles can be matched quite satisfactorily and the observed shapes of the entry and exit craters can be reproduced correctly.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThe modeling of high velocity impact into brittle or quasibrittle solids is hampered by the unavailability of a constitutive model capturing the effects of material comminution into very fine particles. The present objective is to develop such a model, usable in finite element programs. The comminution at very high strain rates can dissipate a large portion of the kinetic energy Of an impacting missile. The spatial derivative of the energy dissipated by comminution gives a force resisting the penetration, which is superposed on the nodal forces obtained from the static constitutive model in a finite element program. The present theory is inspired partly by Grady's model for expansive comminution due to explosion inside a hollow sphere, and partly by analogy with turbulence. In high velocity turbulent flow, the energy dissipation rate gets enhanced by the formation of microvortices (eddies) which dissipate energy by viscous shear stress. Similarly, here it is assumed that the energy dissipation at fast deformation of a confined solid gets enhanced by the release of kinetic energy of the motion associated with a highrate shear strain of forming particles. For simplicity, the shape of these particles in the plane of maximum shear rate is considered to be regular hexagons. The particle sizes are assumed to be distributed according to the Schuhmann power law. The condition that the rate of release of the local kinetic energy must be equal to the interface fracture energy yields a relation between the particle size, the shear strain rate, the fracture energy and the mass density. As one experimental justification, the present theory agrees with Grady's empirical observation that, in impact events, the average particle size is proportional to the (2/3) power of the shear strain rate. The main characteristic of the comminution process is a dimensionless number Ba (Eq. (37)) representing the ratio of the local kinetic energy of shear strain rate to the maximum possible strain energy that can be stored in the same volume of material. It is shown that the kinetic energy release is proportional to the (2/3)power of the shear strain rate, and that the dynamic comminution creates an apparent material viscosity inversely proportional to the (1/3)power of that rate. After comminution, the interface fracture energy takes the role of interface friction, and it is pointed out that if the friction depends on the slip rate the aforementioned exponents would change. The effect of dynamic comminution can simply be taken into account by introducing the apparent viscosity into the material constitutive model, which is what is implemented in the paper that follows.

The concept of stressstrain boundaries (straindependent yield limits) is used to describe the inelastic behavior of concrete. To facilitate the constitutive formulation, the relation between the microplane strain components and the macroscopic strain tensor is firstly identified. A new concept of confinementadjusted effective microplane tangential moduli is introduced. Based on the material experiment observations and physical concepts, some novel microplane stressstrain boundaries are developed.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThis paper, Part II of a twopart study, presents the numerical calibration and validation of the microplane constitutive model M4L for concrete formulated in the preceding part. The model parameters are firstly calibrated through optimum fitting of typical basic material test data. Then the model is verified through comparing the numerical simulation results with a second large group of experiment data in the literature. The simulated experiments include tension, compression and shear as well as their various combinations. Close agreement between the numerical predictions and a very broad range of test data is found. Finally the model is implemented into a commercial finite element package and is applied to nonlinear structural analysis. Several complex but commonly encountered problems in the engineering practice are computationally investigated. The model predictions are in good agreement with the test observations.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersAlthough there exists a vast literature on the dynamic comminution or fragmentation of rocks, concrete, metals, and ceramics, none of the known models suffices for macroscopic dynamic finite element analysis. This paper outlines the basic idea of themacroscopic model. Unlike static fracture, in which the driving force is the release of strain energy, here the essential idea is that the driving force of comminution under highrate compression is the release of the local kinetic energy of shear strain rate. The density of this energy at strain rates <1,000/s is found to exceed themaximum possible strain energy density by orders of magnitude, making the strain energy irrelevant. It is shown that particle size is proportional to the 2/3 power of the shear strain rate and the 2/3 power of the interface fracture energy or interface shear stress, and that the comminution process is macroscopically equivalent to an apparent shear viscosity that is proportional (at constant interface stress) to the 1/3 power of this rate. A dimensionless indicator of the comminution intensity is formulated. The theory was inspired by noting that the local kinetic energy of shear strain rate plays a role analogous to the local kinetic energy of eddies in turbulent flow.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersModel M7f is a new model for fiber reinforced concretes under static and dynamic loads, which features two kinds of improvement over the earlier versions: (1) It is built on M7, a new, greatly improved, microplane model for plain concrete; and (2) it includes a more realistic description of the fiber pullout and breakage. The former include: (a) the absence of volumetric deviatoric split of elastic strains, which eliminates excessive lateral expansions or contractions and stress locking in far postpeak extensions; (b) simulation of the differences between hydrostatic compression and uniaxial compression under rigid lateral confinement; and (c) high shear dilatancy of low strength concretes; and realistic description of unloading, reloading and load cycles, even if they cross between tension and compression. The latter includes an improved continuous dependence of the effect of fibers on the fiber volume fraction. The fiber resistance is a function of the strain representing the average opening of cracks of given spacing and, as in model M5f, a horizontal plateau as a function of the type of fiber and fiber volume fraction has been employed and used systematically for all fits. In this study, this horizontal plateau is justified using uniformly distributed crack bridging fibers. The model behavior is calibrated and verified by fitting of the main test data from the literature. The match of experimental observations and the computational results is closer than in the previous models.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersMathematical modeling of the nonlinear triaxial behavior and damage of such a complexmaterial as concrete has been a longstanding challenge in which progress has been made only in gradual increments. The goal of this study is a realistic and robust material model for explicit finiteelement programs for concrete structures that computes the stress tensor from the given strain tensor and some history variables. Themicroplanemodels, which use a constitutive equation in a vectorial rather than tensorial form and are semimultiscale by virtue of capturing interactions among phenomena of different orientation, can serve this goal effectively. This paper presents a new concrete microplane model, M7, which achieves this goal much better than the previous versions M1M6 developed at Northwestern University since 1985. The basic mathematical structure of M7 is logically correlated to thermodynamic potentials for the elastic regime, the tensile and compressive damage regimes, and the frictional slip regime. Given that the volumetricdeviatoric (VD) split of strains is inevitable for distinguishing between compression failures at low and high confinement, the key idea is to apply the VDsplit only to the microplane compressive stressstrain boundaries (or straindependent yield limits), the sumof which is compared with the total normal stress from the microplane constitutive relation. This avoids the use of the VD split of the elastic strains and of the tensile stressstrain boundary, which caused various troubles in M3M6 such as excessive lateral strains and stress locking in far postpeak uniaxial extension, poor representation of unloading and loading cycles, and inability to represent high dilatancy under postpeak compression in lowerstrength concretes. Moreover, the differences between high hydrostatic compression and compressive uniaxial strain are accurately captured by considering the compressive volumetric boundary as dependent on the principal strain difference.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersDespite determined efforts in mathematical modelling of multiaxial behaviour of plain concrete by many researchers, the existing models have not achieved a full description of this complex behaviour. Among these models, the microplane models have contributed important advances in the semimultiscale modelling of multiaxial behaviour of concrete since their inception in the early 80s. Among several versions of microplane models for plain concrete, model M4 had the greatest success in modelling both the ratedependent dynamic and quasistatic multiaxial behaviours of concrete. Yet, some problems still have persisted, such as (1) a spurious lateral contraction under uniaxial tension, and (2) an unrealistic damage prediction in tension. These problems resulted from the difficulty in reconciling the pressure sensitive ductile behaviour in compression of concrete with its brittle tensile behaviour. A new microplane model, called M7 as a successor to the earlier microplane models for plain concrete, overcomes the aforementioned problems while retaining all of its compressive data fitting prowess. The volumetricdeviatoric split, required in the previous modelling of the pressure sensitive compressive behaviour of concrete, is now removed from the elastic strains under both compression and tension, but retained in the formulation of compressive stressstrain boundaries (i.e, straindependent yield limits on the generic microplane). This allows the simulation of a much more realistic tensile behaviour including the correct damage (loading/unloading slope) and correct lateral contraction. It also means that a new compressive normal boundary is needed. It is defined in terms of the existing deviatoric and volumetric boundaries, which preserves the versatility of the model in fitting a wide range of experimental data...

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersThe microplane material model for concrete, formulated mathematically in the companion paper, is calibrated by material test data from all the typical laboratory tests taken from the literature. Then, the model is verified by finiteelement simulations of data for some characteristic tests with highly nonuniform strain fields. The scaling properties of model M7 are determined. With the volumetric stress effect taken from the previous load step, the M7 numerical algorithm is explicit, delivering in each load step the stress tensor from the strain tensor with no iterative loop. This makes the model robust and suitable for largescale finiteelement computations. There are five free, easily adjustable material parameters, which make it possible to match the given compressive strength, the corresponding strain, the given hydrostatic compression curve, and certain triaxial aspects. In addition, there are many fixed, hardtoadjust parameters, which can be taken to be the same for all concretes. The optimum values of material parameters are determined by fitting a particularly broad range of test results, including the important tests of compressiontension load cycles, mixedmode fracture, tensionshear failure of doubleedgenotched specimens, and vertex effect when axial compression is followed by torsion. Because of the lack of information on the material characteristic length or fracture energy, which can be obtained only by size effect tests on the same concrete, and on the precise boundary conditions and precise gauge locations, the finiteelement fitting of the present test data can hardly be expected to give better results than singlepoint simulations of specimens with approximately homogeneous strain states within the gauge length. Nevertheless, tensile test data with severe localization are delocalized on the basis of assumed material length.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersTwodimensional triaxially braided composites (2DTBCs) are attractive in crashworthiness design because their fracture can dissipate a significantly larger amount of impact energy than other lightweight materials. This paper aims at predicting the fracture energy, Gf, and the effective length of the fracture process zone, cf, of 2DTBC composites. Since the fracture parameters are best manifested in the scaling properties and are the main parameters in the size effect law, the nominal strengths of three geometrically similar notched beams of three different sizes are simulated in a 3D finite element framework. The simulations are run for three different bias tow angles: 30º, 45º and 60º. Continuum beam elements in front of the notch are replaced with repetitive unit cells (RUCs), which represent the 2DTBC’s mesostructure, and are located in the region of potential cracking. Multiscale simulations, incorporating damage mechanics, are used to predict the pre and postpeak response from threepoint bending tests. Nominal stresses are calculated from the predicted peak loads and used to fit the size effect law. The dimensionless energy release rate function g(a) is determined from the Jintegral. The values of Gf and cf are then determined using g(a) and the size effect law. With some exceptions, the results in general match well with the results of size effect experiments, and particularly the strong size effect observed in the tests.

Read the abstract View Share Reference managersA material model for the fracturing behavior for braided composites is developed and implemented in a material subroutine for use in the commercial explicit finite element code ABAQUS. The subroutine is based on the microplane model in which the constitutive behavior is defined not in terms of stress and strain tensors and their invariants but in terms of stress and strain vectors in the material mesostructure called the "microplanes". This is a semimultiscale model, which captures the interactions between inelastic phenomena such as cracking, splitting, and frictional slipping occurring on planes of various orientations though not the interactions at a distance. To avoid spurious mesh sensitivity due to softening, the crack band model is adopted. Its band width, related to the material characteristic length, serves as the localization limiter. It is shown that the model can realistically predict the orthotropic elastic constants and the strength limits. More importantly, the present model can also fit the tests of size effect on the strength of notched specimens and the postpeak behavior, which have been conducted for this purpose. When used in the ABAQUS software, the model gives a realistic picture of the axial crushing of a braided tube by a divergent plug.
