This Special Publication of 13 papers presents advances in fracture mechanics involving characterization, resistance measurements, computation tools, and material toughness. The document is divided into two sections. One section deals with the application of fracture mechanics to cementitious materials. The other section covers the application of fracture mechanics to concrete structures.
