Theoretical and experimental approaches can be used to calculate approximately the elastic modulus of concretes. In the theoretical model, concretes are assumed to be a multi- phase system; thus, the modulus of elasticity is found as a function of the elastic behavior of its components. This is probable by modeling the concrete as a two-phase material, involving the aggregates and the hydrated

A viscoelastoplastic formulation of the constitutive approach has also been developed [22,23
