The state of the art of constitutive modeling of engineered cementitious composites

Placeholder Show Content


A comprehensive review on the state of the art of constitutive modeling of Engineered Cementitious Composites (ECC) is conducted. Different constitutive modeling approaches are examined in details, and their advantages and disadvantages pertaining to ECC modeling are discussed. An analytical model based on total strain concept is implemented using finite element software DIANA. The model is verified against experimental results. The model is applied to a large-scale shear wall simulation. The simulation results are compared to actual concrete shear wall experiments, and the implications of ECC as a building material on structural performance are discussed.
