Seminar Purpose and Objectives
This short course presents in a systematic way microplane and lattice-particle model formulations for the simulation of aging and deterioration of concrete structures with special focus on phenomena like creep, shrinkage and ASR (alkali-silica reaction).
The addressed topics are of interest to graduate students, post-doctoral associates, researchers, and professional engineers who need to become proficient with the use of modern, effective and versatile constitutive equations for the simulation of strainsoftening and damage in concrete.
Prerequisites to attend the course are basic knowledge in continuum mechanics and finite element analysis.
