The tests of uniaxial tension and three-point bending are carried out on rock-concrete composite specimens with natural interfaces to investigate the interface mechanics and fracture process so that to establish interface tension-softening constitutive law between concrete and rock. Tensile strength, fracture energy and initial fracture toughness of rock-concrete interface are investigated qualitatively. Based on the load-displacement curves measured in three-point bending test, the energy dissipation at rock-concrete interface is derived using the modified J-integral method. Further, through enforcing balance between energy dissipation and energy caused by fict...
