Fracture mechanics concepts are increasingly being used in designing concrete structures and in understanding the fundamental behavior of concrete-like materials. Fracture mechanics concepts also have the potential for use in designing concrete FRP composites and in repairing concrete structures. Several of the 15 papers deal with these topics. Determining the fracture properties of concrete materials for various applications requires selecting the proper testing method, and many papers in the volume cover this issue. Practitioners, researchers, and potential users of fracture mechanics concepts will learn the recent technological advances, engineering applications, and research results presented.
