Abstract:
Reviews the tensile failure of concrete structures subjected to a variety of practical loading. Attention is focused on the propensity of fracture failure of concrete structures and the fracture properties of cementitious materials. The relevance of fracture mechanics to modern concrete design code is highlighted.
