The book, prepared in honor of the retirement of Professor J. Mazars, provides a wide overview of continuum damage modeling applied to cementitious materials.
It starts from micro-nanoscale analyses, then follows on to continuum approaches and computational issues. The final part of the book presents industry-based case studies.
The contents emphasize multiscale and coupled approaches toward the serviceability and the safety of concrete structures.
