Modelling of hygro-thermal behaviour of concrete at high temperature with thermo-chemical and mechanical material degradation. (English) Zbl 1033.74011
Summary: We describe a mathematical model for analysis of hygro-thermal behaviour of concrete as a multi-phase porous material at high temperatures, accounting for material deterioration. Full development of the model equations is presented, starting from macroscopic balances of mass, energy and linear momentum of single constituents. Constitutive relationships for concrete at high temperature, including material damage, are discussed. The classical isotropic non-local damage theory is modified to take into account the mechanical and thermo-chemical concrete damage at high temperature. The final form of the governing equations, their discretised form, and their numerical solution are presented. Finally, we discuss two numerical examples concerning fire performance of one- and two-dimensional HPC structures.
