Reinforced Concrete Structures (Frames) 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 frames in Abaqus also require accurate definition of material behavior, loading, mesh technique, etc.
This product (Abaqus video tutorial; Seismic Behavior of Concrete Frame) is based on a laboratory sample. The step-by-step tutorial describes the method which many researchers use to simulate the behavior of such structures. 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 tutorial, we teach you “Concrete damaged plasticity method” to simulate the lateral behavior of concrete frames. So that, in this tutorial, 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 this course (Abaqus video tutorial; Seismic Behavior of Concrete Frame), you will be able to simulate any type of concrete frame and extract the contour of stresses, strains, forces and displacements. You can watch summary of our Abaqus video tutorial below. Please note that visitors should read the terms and conditions section before making a purchase. We hope that this educational video tutorial will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in concrete structures, and thank you in advance for subscribing to our YouTube channel.
