In this volume a survey of the most relevant nonlinear crack models is provided, with the purpose of analyzing the nonlinear mechanical effects occurring at the tip of macrocracks in quasi-brittle materials - such as concrete, rocks, ceramics, polymers, high-strength metallic alloys - and in brittle-matrix fibre-reinforced composites. Such local effects, as, for example, plastic deformation, yielding, strain-hardening, strain-softening, mechanical damage, matrix microcracking, aggregate debonding, fibre bridging, fibre slippage, crazing, and so on, are properly described through different simplified models, representing the peculiarities of the phenomena involved. The models are introduced and described separately and then compared in the last part of the book. This volume will be of interest to students, professionals and researchers in the field of nonlinear fracture mechanics.ComitAc Euro-International du Beton; CEB-FIP Model Code 1990, CEB Bulletin da#39; Information, (1993), 213a214. ... reinforced concrete beams with closely spaced reinforcement, J.of the ACI 60 (1963), 775-789. 53. 54. 55. 56. 57. 58. 59. 60. 61.
