Multifractality of Fracture Patterns Under Various Stress Fields in Concrete


Concrete is a heterogenious material that exhibit strain-softening behavior and fails progressively by damage-localization and breakdown of its components.

Figure 1: Damage Dimension

Figure 2: Transition from a fully developed web of microcracks in the matrix to the local properties of isolated microcracks

Figure 3: At very large resolutions, the width of the cracks is very large and the subsequent image-processing may lead to anomalous thin crack patterns
