Edited in honour of Professor Zdenek P. Bazant 60th anniversary, this volume presents a state of the art in the field of the mechanics of quasi-brittle materials and structures. It is also intended to investigate the potentialities and outstanding issues which should be faced toward the development of models aimed at predicting the life time of existing structures.
