This book presents a whole set of new results which have been published by the authors over the last 30 years in the field of continuum solid mechanics applied to the analysis and design of reinforced civil engineering structures.
The focus is on the development and application of
up-scaling/homogenization methods in the design of such composite structures, with a special emphasis on the plastic behavior and ultimate strength of materials.
The specificity of the book is highlighted by at least two completely innovative concepts which lie at the very heart of the book’s originality: the elaboration of a fully comprehensive homogenization-based method for the design of reinforced structures (and not only materials), through the study of macroscopic behavior, and the development of a multiphase model for materials reinforced by linear inclusions, which considerably extends the range of applicability of the classical homogenization procedure.
1. The “Mixed Modeling” Approach to Reinforced Structures.
2. The Homogenization Approach: Reinforced Materials as Macroscopically Homogeneous Anisotropic Media.
3. Macroscopic Behavior of Materials Reinforced by Thin Highly Stiff/Resistant Linear Inclusions.
4. Mechanical Modeling of Reinforced Materials as Multiphase Systems.
5. Applications of the Multiphase Approach Part 1: Static and Dynamic Stiffness of Piled Raft Foundations.
6. Applications of the Multiphase Approach Part 2: Load-Bearing Capacity and Stability Analysis of Reinforced Structures.
7. Yield Design of Reinforced Concrete Beams, Platesand Shells.
