A constitutive model for concrete is presented which is formulated within the framework of incremental plasticity. The major improvement of the model is the stable and accurate algorithm which can be derived. for tension, compression as well as tension-compression regimes. The analyses of shear-wall panels show that the composite plasticity model is well capable to describe 'the behavior of these type of structures.
