Synopsis: FRACTURE MECHANICS OF CONCRETE AND ROCK

This book offers engineers a unique opportunity to learn, frominternationally recognized leaders in their field, about the latesttheoretical advances in fracture mechanics in concrete, reinforcedconcrete structures, and rock. At the same time, it functions as asuperb, graduate-level introduction to fracture mechanics conceptsand analytical techniques.

Reviews, in depth, the basic theory behind fracture mechanics
* Covers the application of fracture mechanics to compressionfailure, creep, fatigue, torsion, and other advanced topics
* Extremely well researched, applies experimental evidence ofdamage to a wide range of design cases
* Supplies all relevant formulas for stress intensity
* Covers state-of-the-art linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM)techniques for analyzing deformations and cracking
* Describes nonlinear fracture mechanics (NLFM) and the latestRILEM modeling techniques for testing nonlinear quasi-brittlematerials
* And much more
Over the past few years, researchers employing techniques borrowedfrom fracture mechanics have made many groundbreaking discoveriesconcerning the causes and effects of cracking, damage, andfractures of plain and reinforced concrete structures and rock.This, in turn, has resulted in the further development andrefinement of fracture mechanics concepts and tools. Yet, despitethe field's growth and the growing conviction that fracturemechanics is indispensable to an understanding of material andstructural failure, there continues to be a surprising shortage oftextbooks and professional references on the subject.

Written by two of the foremost names in the field, FractureMechanics of Concrete fills that gap. The most comprehensive bookever written on the subject, it consolidates the latest theoreticalresearch from around the world in a single reference that can beused by students and professionals alike.

Fracture Mechanics of Concrete is divided into two sections. In thefirst, the authors lay the necessary groundwork with an in-depthreview of fundamental principles. In the second section, theauthors vividly demonstrate how fracture mechanics has beensuccessfully applied to failures occurring in a wide array ofdesign cases. Key topics covered in these sections include:
* State-of-the-art linear elastic fracture mechanics (LEFM)techniques for analyzing deformations and cracking
* Nonlinear fracture mechanics (NLFM) and the latest RILEM modelingtechniques for testing nonlinear quasi-brittle materials
* The use of R-Curves to describe cracking and fracture inquasi-brittle materials
* The application of fracture mechanics to compression failure,creep, fatigue, torsion, and other advanced topics
The most timely, comprehensive, and authoritative book on thesubject currently available, Fracture Mechanics of Concrete is botha complete instructional tool for academics and students instructural and geotechnical engineering courses, and anindispensable working resource for practicing engineers.
