This book presents the simulation of crack growth in concrete in a straightforward manner using the fictitious crack model in conjunction with the dual boundary element method (DBEM). The DBEM is based on the application of the displacement boundary integral equation on one crack surface and of the traction boundary integral equation on the other. By using the DBEM, the analysis of crack problems can be performed effectively in a single region formulation, and for every crack extension increment, no remeshing is required.
