Abstract: The general formulation of a continuum theory for the inelasticity of concrete is derived. The internal theory of thermodynamics is used and the dissipation inequality is established. The formulation is capable of accommodating inelasticity due to microcrack extension and plastic flow. Damage and plasticity are obtained from a single loading surface which allows for the development of coupled theories between the two irreversible mechanisms present in concrete.
