Abstract: This paper deals with the effect of drying on concrete’s mechanical properties. The study is
conducted through experimental and numerical simulations with or without drying conditions.
A visco-elastic model with damage for concrete provides the state of stress and damage
before loading due to drying shrinkage. The mechanical behavior of specimens, with or
without drying, is then compared in terms of overall behavior. This investigation will thus
allow to understand and to model the effects of drying on the mechanical behaviour of
cementitious materials.
