A one-dimensional ubiquitiformal constitutive model for a bimaterial bar is proposed in this paper. An explicit analytical expression for the effective Young modulus is then obtained, which, unlike the fractal one, leads to a continuous displacement distribution along the bar. Moreover, numerical results for concretes are calculated and found to be in agreement with previous experimental data. In addition, some previous empirical and semi-empirical constitutive models are also examined, which shows that each of these models can correspond well to a ubiquitiformal one under a certain complexity.
