Abstract
In this paper, an existing meso-structural model for concrete which had been applied to the study of the mechanical effects of high temperatures in 2D, is extended to 3D, and to more complex coupled thermo-mechanical analysis. The material is idealized as a two-phase compositein which all mesh lines (or surfaces in 3D) are potential cracks equipped with fracture-based zero-thickness interface elements. Different thermal expansion laws are assumed for matrix and particles, whereby the deformation...
