Various models for describing smeared cracking in plain and reinforced concrete are discussed. A rigorous categorisation is made and some interrelations are shown. Differences and similarities between the formulations are illustrated by means of an elementary example subject to a non-proportional loading path and via a crack propagation problem in plain concrete.
