Carpinteri, Alberto and Paggi, Marco Modelling strain localization by cohesive (overlapping) zones in tension (compression): brittleness size effects and scaling in material properties. In: Mechanics down under. Springer, pp. 15-33. ISBN 978-94-007-5968-8 (2013)Full text not available from this repository.
The present paper is a state-of-the-art review of the research carried out at the Politecnico di Torino during the last two decades on the modelling of strain localization. Introducing the elementary cohesive/overlapping models in tension/compression, it will be shown that it is possible to get a deep insight into the ductile-to-brittle transition and into the scaling of the material properties usually detected when testing quasi-brittle material specimens or structures at different size-scales.
