Abstract

This paper presents a probabilistic multiparameter framework for the modeling of fatigue crack growth in three grades of concrete. The framework relies on the use of ranked fatigue crack growth rate data (with specified occurrence probability levels) in the formulation of multiparameter fatigue crack growth expressions. These relate ranked fatigue crack growth rates to crack driving force parameters such as the stress intensity factor range, maximum stress intensity factor, stress ratio and occurrence probability level. A probabilistic framework is then presented for the estimation of material reliability or failure probability due to fatigue crack growth. The probabilistic model is then validated for the available data.
