Influence of the meso-structure in dynamic fracture simulation of concrete under tensile loading

We investigate the dynamic behavior of concrete in relation to its composition within a computational framework (FEM). Concrete is modeled using a meso-mechanical approach in which aggregates and mortar are represented explicitly. Both continuum phases are considered to behave elastically, while nucleation, coalescence and propagation of cracks are modeled using the cohesive-element approach.
