\"A study of the effect of crack-induced diffusivity on the service life prediction\"

Mohammed Naji Hammood, Nathan Benkemoun & Ouali Amiri
The objective of this paper is to propose a numerical model capable of coupling the transfer of chloride ions and cracking into concrete by developing a meso-macro numerical approach for the determination of macroscopic diffusivity tensors in heterogeneous quasi-brittle materials such as concrete. The strong discontinuity kinematics is added to take into account micro-cracking. The mesoscale coupling with the mass transport part is based on Fick’s Law of diffusion with a modified diffusion coefficient accounting...
