CONSTITUTIVE MODEL FOR CONCRETE UNDER DYNAMIC LOADING.

Abstract

The rational analysis of a structure subjected to impact requires the constitutive relations of the structural material over a wide range of strain-rates. The dynamic test results available for concrete are few and no satisfactory constitutive model exists for predicting the dynamic behavior of concrete. A continuous damage theory for the quasistatic and dynamic behaviour of concrete is presented. The continuous damage theory is a rational choice for use in predicting the dynamic behavior of concrete as the strain-rate effects that have been observed for concrete can be attributed to the rate-sensitivity of the microcracking process.
