In this paper, we present a new multi-physics computational framework that enables us to capture and investigate complex fracture behavior in cement-based materials at early-age. The present model consists of coupling the most important chemo-thermo-mechanical processes to describe temperature evolution, variation of hydration degree, and mechanical behavior. The changes of material properties are expressed as a function of the hydration degree, to capture the age effects. Fracture analysis of these processes are then accommodated by a versatile phase field model in the framework of smeared crack models, addressing the influence of cracks on hydration and thermal transfer. We additionally describe a stable and robust numerical algorithm, which aims to solve coupled problems by using a staggered scheme. The developed approach is applied to study the fracture phenomena at both macroscopic and mesoscopic scales, in which all microstructural heterogeneities of sand and cement matrix are explicitly accounted. Nucleation, initiation, and propagation of complex crack network are simulated in an efficient way demonstrating the potential of the proposed approach to assess the early-age defects in concrete structures and materials.

Mechanical behavior of layered materials and structures greatly depends on the mechanical behavior of interfaces. In the past decades, the failure in such layered media has been studied by many researchers due to their critical role in the mechanics and physics of solids. This study aims at investigating crack-interface interaction in two-dimensional (2-D) and three-dimensional (3-D) layered media by a phase field model. Our objectives are fourfold: (a) to better understand fracture behavior in layered heterogeneous systems under quasi-static load; (b) to introduce a new methodology for better describing interfaces by a regularized interfacial transition zone in the context of varia-tional phase field approach, exploring its important role; (c) to show the accuracy , performance and applicability of the present model in modeling material failure at the interfaces in both 2-D and 3-D bodies; and (d) to quantitatively validate computed crack path with respect to experimental data. Phase field models with both perfectly and cohesive bonded interfaces are thus derived. A regularized interfacial transition zone is introduced to capture characteristics of material mismatch at the interfaces. Numerical examples for 2-D and 3-D layered systems with experimental validation provide fundamentals of fracture behavior in layered structures. The obtained results shed light on the behavior of crack paths, which are drastically affected by the elastic modulus mismatch between two layers and interface types, and reveal the important role of the proposed interfacial transition zone in phase field modeling of crack interface interactions.
