Abstract:

Discrete Element modelling of concrete requires the precise calibration of model parameters that is a long lasting and computationally expensive task in case of complex models. Present study introduces a method for estimating a model parameter (normal strength of parallel bonds) for concretes with different particle size distribution and aggregate type. The parameter estimation leads to an optimization problem based on physical measurement data. In the present paper, a model and its parameters are proposed to estimate normal strength of parallel bonds based on the density and compressive strength of concrete.
