Speech Title: Damage ratio strength theory for concrete and isotropic rock
Abstract: Since 2006, the author has found the tensile damage ratio and the compressive damage ratio of brittle materials in inelastic stage as two basic variables of the strength criterion. The expressions of the inelastic principal strain rate and the energy dissipation rate of cast iron were derived, the general expression of the damage ratio strength criterion for engineering materials was establish, and the simplified damage ratio strength criteria for materials under confining triaxial condition and biaxial stress states were established. Among them, the general expression can be reduced to the von Mises yield criterion for plastic materials, and the simplified confining triaxial criterion for brittle materials is the same as the Mohr-Coulomb strength criterion. The compressive damage ratio affected by both the Lode angle and the hydrostatic pressure is generally greater than 0.5, which makes the volume and failure surface of materials expand. The tensile damage ratio is generally less than 0.2, which makes the volume and failure surface of materials shrink. Based the above rules and the characteristics of the failure surfaces for various types of concrete and rock, a six-parameter expression of the damage ratio variable was established. The six empirical parameters in the damage ratio expression of various types of concrete and rock and the three empirical parameters in that of cast iron are recommended, which are verified by over 1700 experimental data points of various types of concrete, rock and cast iron. In addition, an empirical parameter of the simplified confining triaxial strength criterion and four empirical parameters of the simplified biaxial strength criterion were recommended.
