This 6-modules online course focuses on the application of the finite element method in structural analysis of (reinforced) concrete structures. Particular focus is placed upon nonlinear analysis of (reinforced) concrete structures, with emphasis on crack modelling and failure analysis. Delegates will learn good practice in nonlinear finite element analysis and also the criteria for choosing among different crack models available, convergence criteria and the setting of corresponding parameters.
Module I-3: Reinforced Concrete Analysis in DIANA (€300)
- Crack modeling (discrete cracking, smeared cracking)
- Concrete modeling (tension stiffening, cracking & crushing, cyclic loading)
- Reinforcement modeling (embedded reinforcements, bond-slip models…)
- Exercise: Reinforced concrete beam under static load (Demo)
Competencies: after completing this session, you will gain good understanding of reinforced concrete modeling and the pros/cons of different approaches.
