Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Beam under Concentrated Load


This numerical sample is produced and based on a laboratory sample. The results of the comparison of two samples indicate that numerical assumptions and simulation have led to acceptable results. Using this educational product, you can see the contour of the stresses, strain and cracks caused by seismic loading. CAE and JNL, results and CDP Excel files, Journal Paper are provided to you by purchasing the product. You can edit and run Model using Abaqus 6.14.1 or later versions. for more detail please read the below description.


Reinforced Concrete Beam under Concentrated Load using ABAQUS

The “Structural Numerical Research Center” provides numerous numerical models to assist scientists and researchers all over the world. For last 13 years, we have always aimed to improve engineering knowledge and develop the findings. Modeling the behavior of concrete structures has always had certain complexities. The modeling technique for beams, columns and in general every reinforced concrete member has the same generalities and completely different details. Therefore, concrete beam in Abaqus require accurate definition of material behavior, loading condition and mesh technique, etc.

This Product:

This product (Reinforced Concrete Beam under Concentrated Load) is based on a laboratory sample and it does contain tutorial video. The modeling technique used is quite similar to the technique that many researchers use today in finite element analysis of RC beams. As you know, the Abaqus material library provided three methods to simulate concrete behavior;

1- Concrete smeared cracking.

2- Cracking model for concrete.

3- Concrete damaged plasticity.

All three methods have unique features which should choose by the user based on the problem conditions. In this product, we considered “Concrete damaged plasticity method” to simulate the behavior of concrete beam. So that, mechanical behavior of concrete material is a continuum, plasticity-based and damage model.

The main two failure mechanisms are assumed for tensile cracking and compressive crushing of concrete material and has been carefully applied through modeling prosses. After evaluating this product (Reinforced Concrete Beam under Concentrated Load using ABAQUS), you will be able to simulate any type of concrete beam and extract the contour of stresses, strains, forces and displacements. You can watch summary of our Abaqus tutorial videos in our YouTube channel. Thank you in advance for subscribing to our YouTube channel.
