Abstract: Couplings between creep and damage have to be considered to study the serviceability of
concrete structures. This problem is of fundamental importance for structures exposed to
relatively high loads over long time scales, e. g. ASR loads. Numerical simulations are
performed via the AMIE framework. An appropriate algorithm is proposed and implemented
to consider creep-damage couplings. Three-points bending tests on concrete notched beams
are modelled and analysed. This kind of structures exhibits a snap-back instability. It is
highlighted that the post-peak softening response is dependent on the fracture criterion and on
the rate of loading. An experimental campaign to distinguish between proposed criteria has
been launched: beams are tested under different loading rates.
