The paper deals with numerical modeling of damage evolution in autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) due to shrinkage. It represents coupled thermo-hydro-mechanical problem where the temperature and moisture transports are fully coupled. The mechanical problem is partially coupled with transport part because the AAC shrinkage is influenced by moisture evolution. These models were implemented to the SIFEL software package and they were used for numerical simulation of drying wall made from AAC blocks.
