Abstract:

This report results from a contract tasking Delft University of Technology as follows The contractor will investigate the mechanical behavior of brittle heterogeneous materials such as concrete extreme dynamic loading conditions. The contractor will develop a mathematical model of brittle heterogeneous materials under extreme dynamic loading conditions to accurately predict civil engineering structural responses not well predicted by existing quasi-static models.
