(Order reference 11468).

This book presents new research findings on the fast developing applications of fracture mechanics to concrete structures. Papers from leading international experts describe existing and new modelling techniques in the analysis of concrete materials and structures. The book explains the practical application of fracture mechanics to structural modelling, bending, shear, bond and anchorage.
The proceedings of this RILEM Workshop will be an important reference for those engaged in design, development and research on concrete structures. It is dedicated to Professor Arne Hillerborg, one of the pioneers in the introduction of Fracture mechanics to concrete. A review of Professor Hillerborg's contribution to the subjectis included. The book forms the Proceedings of the RILEM Workshop held in  Abisko, Sweden, in 1989.
