Damage plasticity model for concrete failure CDPM2

Those involved in the modelling of the failure of plain/reinforced concrete using damage and plasticity might be interested in our webpage

which we have created to support our concrete damage plasticity model CDPM(2) in LS-DYNA. You can find there a number of example input files, reports and our implementation of the model in the form of a user subroutine.

Two PhD studentships in computational fracture mechanics at the University of Glasgow

There are two PhD studentships available at the University of Glasgow in the area of computational fracture mechanics of concrete.

The topics are multiscale modelling of corrosion induced cracking and meso-mechanically motivated nonlocal models for fracture

Please visit my webpage at for more information.

All the best,

Peter Grassl

Terminology for discrete approaches to modelling fracture

It appears to me that there is more and more research done on discrete approaches to modelling fracture.
Especially for brittle or quasi-brittle materials these methods are undergoing a revival.
I am not sure why this is the case. I am also not in the position to judge if this revival is useful.
I just had recently a look at some of these models and I found these discrete models to be suitable
for description of fracture in heterogeneous materials, where cracks appear at many different positions.
