Multiscale Modelling of Concrete

Shanaka Baduge

Concrete is a heterogenous multi-phase and multi-scale material that is difficult to model and understand due to its heterogeneity. Thus, knowing the properties and modelling concrete in different scales is essential to predict properties and fracture. Most of the research has been focused on meso scale, or the methods available to model and predict micro-scale properties are not linked to experimental methods, so properties for microscale cannot be derived and it is onerous to validate such methods. Considering the above constraints in the multi-scale modelling of concrete, the book covers different modelling techniques of scales of concrete - macro, meso, micro/nano and molecular level, characterising mechanical properties and parameters required for modelling using macro and micro level experiments and linking these levels using analytical and numerical methods to upscale results from micro to the macro level.

About the Author

Baduge, Shanaka: - Dr Baduge is a research fellow and manager of the Australian Research Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Buildings (ARC CAMP.H), Department of Infrastructure Engineering, The University of Melbourne. He has expertise in high-performance concrete and multiscale modelling of concrete. He developed theories and guidelines for ultra-high-performance concrete and multi-scale modelling of concrete that has been published in the leading journal in the field, including Nature's Scientific Report, Engineering Structures, Construction and Building Materials, and Engineering Fracture Mechanics. He has published 11 journal papers related to multiscale modelling and understanding the fracture of concrete from nano to structural scale.
Mendis, Priyan: - Professor Mendis is a professor at the University of Melbourne, Australia with over 35 years of research experience. Prof. Mendis is a world leader in the field of construction and building materials, and concrete technology. He is the Director of ARC Centre for Advanced Manufacturing of Prefabricated Modular Housing and deputy director of the ARC Research Hub for Transformation of Reclaimed Waste into Engineered Materials and Solutions (TREMS). He has authored and co-authored more than 500 publications.
Thilakarathna, Sadeep: - Dr Thilakarathna is a research fellow at the Department of Infrastructure Engineering, The University of Melbourne, Australia. He has expertise in multiscale modelling of concrete, numerical modelling of concrete structures and microstructural characterisation. He has published several journal papers related to multiscale modelling and his PhD thesis was mainly focused on multiscale modelling of high-strength concrete. He has developed new methods and theories to characterise material on the nano/micro scale to determine microstructural phases and their properties and link these properties to the macro scale.
Vimonsatit, Vanissorn: - Dr Vimonsatit has a broad range of experience in research and engineering practices in the construction industry. Her research interests are multiscale modelling, AI for material and structural design, buildability, construction materials, structural engineering, and sustainability. She has published many research articles on the field of multiscale modelling and has extensive knowledge of numerical modelling methods and homogenization methods.
