Abstract:
Elements of a theory for the mechanical behavior of concrete are developed. . .This study provides information on the nature of inelastic behavior of concrete by examining its micro-behavior under a short-time loading. Based on this micro-behavior and on statiscal concepts, the study attempts to develop elements of a unified theory for the response of concrete from zero through the elastic, inelastic and descending ranges of the stress-strain curve to fracture.
