By Jacek Tejchman, Jerzy Bobiński

The booklet analyzes a quasi-static fracture method in concrete and strengthened concrete by way of constitutive versions formulated inside of continuum mechanics. a continual and discontinuous modelling process was once used. utilizing a continual method, numerical analyses have been played utilizing a finite point strategy and 4 diversified more advantageous continuum types: isotropic elasto-plastic, isotropic harm and anisotropic smeared crack one. The versions have been built with a attribute size of micro-structure by way of a non-local and a second-gradient thought. in order that they may well effectively describe the formation of localized zones with a undeniable thickness and spacing and a similar deterministic measurement influence. utilizing a discontinuous FE procedure, numerical result of cracks utilizing a cohesive crack version and XFEM have been offered which have been additionally competently regularized. Finite point analyses have been played with concrete parts below monotonic uniaxial compression, uniaxial pressure, bending and shear-extension. Concrete beams less than cyclic loading have been additionally simulated utilizing a coupled elasto-plastic-damage process. Numerical simulations have been played at macro- and meso-level of concrete. A stochastic and deterministic measurement influence used to be conscientiously investigated. relating to strengthened concrete specimens, FE calculations have been conducted with bars, narrow and brief beams, columns, corbels and tanks. Tensile and shear failure mechanisms have been studied. Numerical effects have been in comparison with effects from corresponding personal and recognized within the medical literature laboratory and full-scale tests.

Automated deduction, CADE-20: 20th International Conference on Automated Deduction, Tallinn, Estonia, July 22-27, 2005 : proceedings

This publication constitutes the refereed lawsuits of the twentieth foreign convention on automatic Deduction, CADE-20, held in Tallinn, Estonia, in July 2005. The 25 revised complete papers and five method descriptions provided have been conscientiously reviewed and chosen from seventy eight submissions. All present facets of computerized deduction are addressed, starting from theoretical and methodological concerns to presentation and overview of theorem provers and logical reasoning platforms.

New Concepts and Applications in Soft Computing

The publication offers a pattern of analysis at the leading edge conception and functions of soppy computing paradigms. the belief of soppy Computing was once initiated in 1981 while Professor Zadeh released his first paper on delicate information research and continuously advanced ever considering the fact that. Professor Zadeh outlined delicate Computing because the fusion of the fields of fuzzy common sense (FL), neural community idea (NN) and probabilistic reasoning (PR), with the latter subsuming trust networks, evolutionary computing together with DNA computing, chaos thought and elements of studying thought into one multidisciplinary procedure.

Logic programming and non-monotonic reasoning : proceedings of the second international workshop

This can be the second one in a chain of workshops which are bringing jointly researchers from the theoretical finish of either the good judgment programming and synthetic intelligence groups to debate their mutual pursuits. This workshop emphasizes the connection among good judgment programming and non-monotonic reasoning.

Handbook of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies

Metadata learn has emerged as a self-discipline cross-cutting many domain names, fascinated about the availability of dispensed descriptions (often known as annotations) to internet assets or purposes. Such linked descriptions are meant to function a origin for complicated prone in lots of program parts, together with seek and site, personalization, federation of repositories and automatic supply of knowledge.

Example text

This Chapter presents continuous models to describe concrete behaviour in a quasi-static regime during monotonic and cyclic loading. In the case of monotonic loading, isotropic elasto-plastic, isotropic damage and smeared crack model, and in the case of cyclic loading elasto-plastic-damage models are described. An integral-type non-local and a second gradient approaches to model strain localization are introduced. In addition, bond-slip laws are presented. : within non-linear elasticity (Palaniswamy and Shah 1974), linear fracture mechanics (Bažant and Cedolin 1979, Hilleborg 1985), endochronic theory (Bažant and Bhat 1976, Bažant and Shieh 1978), micro-plane theory (Bažant and Ožbolt 1990, Jirásek 1999), plasticity (Willam and Warnke 1975, Ottosen 1977, Hsieh et al.
