Abstract : The report presents progress made to-date on the construction of improved constitutive relations for plain and reinforced concrete. The report contains: (1) a comprehensive survey and assessment of the experimental and theoretical literature pertaining to plain concrete and steel-concrete interaction; (2) a new failure criterion for plain concrete that accurately reflects material behavior; and (3) a new theoretical framework for reinforced concrete that provides excellent simulation capability. Model validations are conducted for a certain class of plain and reinforced concrete problems. Keywords: Constitutive Models; Plain Concrete; Mixture Theories; Inelastic Response; Large Deformation; Plasticity.
