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-5: Heat of Hydration & Early Age Concrete Cracking Analysis (€300)
- Ambient dependent parameters
- Model Code Input
- Analysis setup requirements in DIANA
- Creep and Shrinkage effects
- Exercise: Flow Stress Analysis of a Box Girder (Insight)
Competencies: after completing this session, you will gain good understanding on Early Age Concrete behaviour and how to take into account Creep and Shrinkage effects.
