For both research and practicing civil, structural, and mechanical engineers, presents a general discussion of the current thought on the mechanics of concrete fracturing, and twelve reports of specific recent or ongoing research. The overall topics are micromechanics, microscopic observations, and

1. Micromechanics, Microscopic Observations and Rate Effect.- Fracture process zone in cementitious materials.- Observation of fracture process zone by laser speckle technique and governing mechanism in fracture of concrete.- Tensile fracture of concrete at high loading rates taking account of inertia and crack velocity effects.- 2. Numerical Fracture Analysis, Design Codes and Applications.- Smeared and discrete representations of localized fracture.- Code-type formulation of fracture mechanics concepts for concrete.- The collapse of the Schoharie Creek Bridge: a case study in concrete fracture mechanics.- 3. Nonlinear Fracture or Damage Models and Size Effect.- Application of the fictitious crack model to different types of materials.- Features of mechanics of quasi-brittle crack propagation in concrete.- Size dependence of concrete fracture energy determined by RILEM work-of-fracture method.- Nonlinear fracture of cohesive materials.- Size effect and continuous damage in cementitious materials.- Size-scale transition from ductile to brittle failure: structural response vs. crack growth resistance curve.
