General Information


Lattice fracture model (own development)


Microlab, Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, Stevinweg 1, Delft (building #23)

Key words:

lattice model, fracture, tensile strength, salt scaling, ASR, microcracks, fracture energy

Main application:

Simulation tool to study fracture mechanisms in heterogeneous materials

Instrument specification

Development platform:
C / C++, unix/linux and windows

Main function:
Simulation of fracture mechanisms due to external loading or internal degradation mechanisms. Model is used to simulate fracture experiments. Disorder of the microstructure can be implemented via digitized images of microstructures. The model can be applied on various levels of the material.
