Abstract

The Chapter discusses discontinuous approaches to simulate cracks in concrete. Two approaches are described: a cohesive crack model using interface elements defined along finite element boundaries and eXtended Finite Element Method (XFEM) wherein cracks can occur arbitrarily in the interior of finite elements.
