Complex investigations of the development of micro- and macro-cracks in concrete members: experiments and discrete element method modelling

The scientific goal of the project is to explain the mechanism of propagation of elastic waves at the meso-level and their interaction with micro- and macro-cracking in concrete members subjected to monotonic quasi-static loading. This mechanism will be described by means of the advanced mathematical model based on the extended discrete element method (DEM). Because concrete has a particular structure that is discontinuous and heterogeneous, DEM is a suitable tool for investigating its mechanical behaviour at the aggregate level (meso-level). The DEM approach will allow for a precise reconstruction of the meso-structure of concrete and analyses of the evolution of micro- and macro-cracks and propagation of elastic waves at the level of aggregates during concrete deformation. The measurable effect of the project implementation will be papers published in journals indexed on the JCR list.
