© 2018 Based on Delaunay triangulation, a 3D meso-scale model is successfully developed and verified. This approach modelling fibre and concrete separately and linking them with slide line contact has the capability to truly reflect the interfacial behaviour of fibre and mortar, and thus achieve high fidelity of numerical simulations. However, meso-scale modelling usually means tremendous complexity and long computational time. This paper proposes a model to achieve relatively high computation efficiency, as well as accuracy. Besides, the model has the potential to deal with small specimens cut from steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) blocks.
