Chemoplastic Modelling for Concrete at High Temperature

Chemoplastic Modelling for Concrete at High Temperature A numerical model to simulate the impact of high temperature on the behavior of conventional concrete under chemoplastic framework is developed and validated. The model is based on new formulation of a constitutive law with new chemoplastic potential. By overlaying the chemoplastic potential on the modified Etse and Willam yielding surface, both defined on the Haigh-Westergaard coordinates, it was found that the two curves do not undergo similar stress state at the same strength parameter. For an adequate evaluation of normal vectors, each surface is forced to pass through the current stress state. Keeping the loading surface unchanged, the calculation of the plastic potential need to be modified. The proposed constitutive model is validated by comparing predicted and experimental data. The model is shown to be accurate to predict different stress states of concrete under different temperature levels. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Structural Fire Engineering Emerald Publishing

Abstract

A numerical model to simulate the impact of high temperature on the behavior of conventional concrete under chemoplastic framework is developed and validated. The model is based on new formulation of a constitutive law with new chemoplastic potential. By overlaying the chemoplastic potential on the modified Etse and Willam yielding surface, both defined on the Haigh-Westergaard coordinates, it was found that the two curves do not undergo similar stress state at the same strength parameter. For an adequate evaluation of normal vectors, each surface is forced to pass through the current stress state. Keeping the loading surface unchanged, the calculation of the plastic potential need to be modified. The proposed constitutive model is validated by comparing predicted and experimental data. The model is shown to be accurate to predict different stress states of concrete under different temperature levels.
