Abstract
Although considerable research has been devoted to concrete fracture in recent years, cracking and fracture under confined conditions remain largely unstudied. From the theoretical/numerical viewpoint, the last two authors proposed already over 10 years ago an asymptotic mixed mode of fracture or "mode IIa", with a second fracture energy independent and significantly higher than the traditional mode I energy [1]. Cracks under this mode IIa would be subject to sufficiently high compression across...
