Stress analysis of RC structures that have been affected by freezing and thawing requires development of constitutive models that are sensitive to the effect of damage by freezing and thawing. In this paper, the stress-crack width model for concrete damaged by freezing and thawing is presented. Concrete damaged by freezing and thawing can also carry tensile stress after the peak stress.
