Abstract

This paper discusses the establishment of a plasticity-based damage mechanics model for Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC). The present model differs from existing models by combining a matrix and fiber description in order to describe the behavior of the ECC material. The model provides information about crack opening and spacing, which makes it possible to assess the condition of a structure in the serviceability state. A simulation of a four point bending beam is performed to demonstrate the capability of the model.
