Fracture Mechanics of Concrete and Concrete Structures

September 10 - 14, 2023

IISc Bangalore

Themes and Mini Symposia


The main themes of FraMCoS – XI are:

A: Theoretical fracture mechanics
B: Experimental methodologies
C: Computational modelling
D: Durability and Corrosion-induced cracking

The following specialized topics are also welcome:

E: Interface fracture
F: Cyclic and fatigue behavior
G: Constitutive relations and time-dependent effects
H: Developments in structural design codes
I: High-performance, high strength concretes and FRC
J: Micro-nanoscale models and experiments
K: Non-destructive testing
L: Probabilistic aspects of fracture
M: Structural concrete applications

Mini Symposia

In addition to the above topics, mini-symposia focusing on the current research interests on fracture of concrete and concrete structures will be organized:
