Crack propagation simulation of concrete with the regular triangular lattice model
Byung-Wan Jo, Ghi-Ho Tae, Erik Schlangen and Chang-Hyun Kim

Abstract     [Full Text]
    This paper discusses 2D lattice models of beams for simulating the fracture of brittle materials. A simulation of an experiment on a concrete beam subjected to bending, in which two overlapping cracks occur, is used to study the effect of individual beam characteristics and different arrangements of the beams in the overall lattice. It was found that any regular orientation of the beams influences the resulting crack patterns. Methods to implement a wide range of Poisson
