Principal drawing of the proposed sub-macroscopic model of compressive failure of actively confined concrete: An idealised concrete cross section is shown, consisting of circular aggregate particles embedded in hardened cement paste. The prism is subjected to a vertical load and supported by an external lateral compressive stress (active confinement). By searching for the critical/weakest path of failure line through the cross section (consisting of two different parts: (i) straight failure lines through bulk cement paste and (ii) interface cracks along the perimeter of hard aggregate particles encountered), the capacity of the structure is determined as the load which will cause this failure mode to initiate.
