Book Description

Since 1984 the EURO-C conference series (Split 1984, Zell am See 1990, Innsbruck 1994, Badgastein 1998, St Johann im Pongau 2003, Mayrhofen 2006, Schladming 2010) has provided a forum for academic discussion of the latest theoretical, algorithmic and modelling developments associated with computational simulations of concrete and concrete structures. Computational Modelling of Concrete Structures includes recent research advancements on the applicability and robustness of methods and models for the analysis of complex concrete, reinforced concrete and/or pre-stressed concrete structures in engineering practice.

The book covers both computational mechanics and computational modelling aspects of the analysis and design of concrete structures:

* Constitutive and Multiscale Modelling of Concrete

* Advances in Computational Modelling

* Time Dependent and Multiphysics Problems

* Modelling of Concrete Structures

* Hazard, Risk and Safety

Computational Modelling of Concrete Structures is of special interest to researchers in computational concrete mechanics, and to industry experts in complex nonlinear simulations of concrete structures.
