Abstract: Using RILEM TC 162-TDF standard, concrete of different strength and curing age were tested to get the load-deflection curve. Then, fracture energy was calculated according to RILEM 50-FMC standard. Meanwhile, fractal method was used to adjust the fracture area during the calculation of fracture energy. Research results show that fracture energy is influenced by concrete strength, curing age and fracture style; fracture energy increase along with the increase of concrete strength and curing age after the adjustment of fracture area.
