AbstractThe objective of this research work is to simulate the interfacial shear response of fibre-reinforced polymer/concrete joints using a micromechanics-based concrete approach. The M4 version of the microplane concrete theory is coded in FORTRAN and implemented as a parallel user-defined subroutine into the commercial finite element software package ADINA. This article first focuses on three-dimensional nonlinear micromechanics-based finite element analyses. Then, validations are carried out using experimental results of 40 fibre-reinforced polymer/concrete joints. The objective is to assess the accuracy of the microplane approach to represent the interfacial shear behaviour of the fibre-reinforced polymer/concrete joints as an alternative to implementing interface elements. At the end of this article, numerical comparisons are presented between the predictions using a phenomenological concrete constitutive law adopted in the software package (with a smeared crack model) and the micromechanics-based analysis (microplane theory) to simulate the concrete behaviour.
