Abstract: The objective of this study is to analyze the effect of crack to the behaviors of concrete structure. In this paper we take advantage of finite element method (FEM) to simulate the concrete behaviors with assumptive crack and compare with the no-faults concrete structure. We focus on the stress, strain and displacement which can explain the behavior of concrete structures and investigate the effect of crack on concrete structures.


Keywords: FEM, Crack, Concrete, Stress, Strain, Displacement.
