Abstract

For the use of micro-mechanics based constitutive models for fibre reinforced strain hardening cementitious materials in finite element simulations of structural components, it is required to link the crack opening at the scale of fibres to the cracking strain at the scale of structural components. We aim to establish this link by incorporating a micro-mechanics based fibre bridging stress crack opening law into a macroscopic damage-plasticity approach, which we call CDPM2F. The model is implemented in the open-source finite element program OOFEM. The model produces mesh-insensitive results and its response agrees well with experimental results for failure in tension, shear and compression reported in the literature.
