Abstract
Meso-mechanical analysis of heterogeneous and quasi-brittle materials such as concrete or rock has emerged as a powerful tool for representing the fracture processes under different loading or environmental situations. The group of Mechanics of Materials at UPC (Barcelona, Spain) has been developing such tools with the distinctive feature of the way of representing a key ingredient of concrete behavior: cracking. All lines in the FE mesh are considered as potential crack lines, via systematic us...
