A viscoplastic-softening model is developed; it invokes damage accumulation depending on the viscous strain and stress rates. For deformation beyond the peak on the uniaxial stress-strain curve, the softening behavior is modelled by applying the accounting for loss in stiffness due to localized material damage by cracking. Predicted are the hardening/softening behavior of cement paste. The results for applied strain rates of 3 × 10−3, 3 × 10−2 and 3 × 10−1 s−1 agreed well with the test data. Similar success was obtained for the creep of two types of concrete under compression.
