Abstract

The dynamic failure behavior of fiber reinforced cementitious composites (FRCC) is simulated using an irregular lattice model. During fracture process, the visco-plastic contributions represent the rate dependency of the matrix phase. Individual fibers are introduced within the lattice framework for the explicit modeling of these heterogenous features of the composites. Three-point bending tests are simulated for a plain mortar beam and FRCC beams with two different fiber volume fractions. Crack patterns and load responses are presented for the evaluation of failure characteristics. The results provide qualitative understandings of the failure features of FRCC structures under dynamic loading conditions.
