The Three-Fluids Model for Concrete and beyond

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Recent advances in the application of the three fluids model for concrete will be discussed where creep matters such as in repair problems. As known, this model considers concrete as composed of a deformable solid matrix with pores filled by dry air, capillary water and water vapor. The interaction of the constituents as well as phase change is taken into account. It will also be shown that the same material free balance equations can successfully be adopted for the simulation of tumor growth and drug delivery. In this case the solid phase is the extracellular matrix and the three fluids are formed by the healthy cells, the tumor cells and the interstitial fluid which transports the chemical species (therapeutic agents). The extracellular matrix is an elasto-visco-plastic porous solid of the Perzyna type. Applications for both forms of the general model will be shown.
