DIANA FEA BV is pleased to invite you to its training course on the Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures. The training course consists of a balanced mixture of lectures and hands-on computer analyses with the DIANA finite element software.
The course focuses on the application of the finite element method in the structural analysis of concrete structures. The lectures will be followed by exercises to provide participants with hands-on experience relevant to the presented theory
Particular attention will be given to the nonlinear analysis of (reinforced and fiber reinforced) concrete structures with special emphasis on crack modelling, early age behaviour of concrete and heat of hydration analysis. Delegates will learn good-practice in nonlinear finite element analysis. Consideration will also be given to the criteria needed in choosing from the different crack models that are available, convergence criteria, and specification of the relevant corresponding parameters.
