c] To simulate inelastic behavior of the concrete under a general 3D stress state, the concrete damaged plasticity model in ABAQUS [7] is adopted.
The isotropic behavior of rocks, according to the maximum shear stress theory, assumes that when a rock behaves elastically, the ratio of tensile to compressive strength is almost unity; and rock failure is defined as an initiation of inelastic behavior in rock (Farmer, 1968; Roberts, 1977).
The CDP model used herein uses concepts of isotropic damage in combination with isotropic tensile and compressive plasticity to represent the inelastic behavior of concrete (Lubliner et al.
Known for his work in earth-quake-resistant design of concrete structures, Wight's recent research has concentrated on the strength and inelastic behavior of connections in composite structures (reinforced concrete and steel) and the use of high-performance fiber reinforced concrete composites for earthquake-resistant design of critical members in concrete structures.
The viscoelastic behavior of the solutions show that cotton pulp cellulose/BmimCl solutions show viscous, inelastic behavior at low frequency, and more elastic at higher frequency.
Kenneth et al (1990) developed an analytical modeling scheme to assess the damageability of reinforced concrete buildings experiencing inelastic behavior under earthquake loads.
More recent advances contain not only linear elastic contact theories but also include inelastic behavior (4).
Mechanical testing, or destructive testing, probes materials to reveal elastic or inelastic behavior when force is applied.
It begins with the linear elastic theory and proceeds to include the effects of large deformations and inelastic behavior.

Material models from mechanical (metals) and civil (concrete and soils) engineering cannot be applied directly to polymers because of their significant rate-dependent inelastic behavior.
