Abstract : In order to design reliable concrete structures, prediction of long term behaviour of concrete is important. In fact, creep deformation can cause mechanical deterioration and cracking, stress redistribution, loss in presteressed members and rarely ruin the structure. The aim of this research is to have a better understing of the interaction between creep and crack growth in concrete. An experimental investigation on the fracture properties of concrete beams submitted to creep bending tests with high levels of sustained load is reported. The influence of creep on residual capacity and fracture energy of concrete is studied. In parallel, the acoustic emission technique (AE) was used to monitor crack development. The results give wealth information on damage evolution and show a decrease in the width of the fracture process zone (FPZ) characterizing a more brittle behaviour for beams subjected to creep. The AE shows that this may be due to the development of microcracking detected under creep Based on those experimental results, a mesoscopic numerical study was proposed by coupling a damage model based on the microplan theory and a viscoelastic creep model defined by several Kelvin-voigt chains. The numerical results on concrete specimens in tension and in bending confirm the development of microcracks during creep at the mortar-aggregate interface.
