Research and Markets Announces New Book on Crack Analysis in Structural Concrete

Research and Markets has rolled out a new book from Elsevier Science and Technology, titled “Crack Analysis in Structural Concrete, Theory and Applications"

The content of the book is based on the fracture mechanics of concrete and highlights the newest developments with regards to computational theories. It explains how these theories can be applied in problems related to real life engineering. Utilizing his wide research experience, Zihai Shi provides a detailed assessment of multiple-crack analysis as well as mixed-mode fracture.

Fracture mechanics of concrete, when compared with other disciplines of mature engineering, is still in a developing stage requiring further development and research. Recently, diverse applications and models have been projected for crack analysis. The author evaluates these analyses and identifies their limitations to offer a detailed treatment of applications that proves to be strong by its comprehensive utilization.

The author first explains stress singularity in numerical modeling, and then a few basic modeling techniques. He then goes on to explain the Extended Fictitious Crack Model (EFCM) along with numerical application examples. The application of this theoretical model is subsequently used in studying the two significant issues in fracture mechanics crack localization and interaction, and maximum loads and fracture modes. The EFCM is subsequently reformulated to incorporate the shear shift mechanism on crack surfaces and the technique is used to find out experimental problems.

By carefully balancing the mixture of experiment, theory and application, the Crack Analysis in Structural Concrete plays a significant role in the growth of structural analysis in concrete.
