The theoretical basis of a method to determine the fracture energy GF of concrete

Hillerborg, Arne (1985) In Materials and Structures 18(106). p.291-296
Abstract
RILEM Technical Committee 50 - Fracture Mechanics of Concrete, has put forward a proposal for a recommendation for the determination of the fracture energy G//F of mortar and concrete. The significance of G//F in the strength of concrete structures is discussed and it is demonstrated that G//F in some cases, for example for shear failure of beams and slabs without shear reinforcement, is a material property which may be as important as normal strength properties. For the measurements of energy absorption a three-point bend test on a notched beam has been proposed. The choice of test specimen and of evaluation method is discussed.
