Abstract

This paper presents the results of creep tests on three notched dam models made with three type of concrete. In order to characterise the time-dependent behaviour of the process zone, a series of tensile tests was performed for each kind of concrete. On the basis of the law obtained in this way, crack propagation was simulated numerically through the Cohesive Crack model.
