A tool for non-linear analysis of concrete and r/c structures

Data di pubblicazione originale dell'articolo: 9/01/2014

This paper presents the development and the enhancement of Opensees introduced by the authors to make it an effective tool for non-linear analysis of concrete and R/C structures and for post-processing the outputs. A three-dimensional isotropic plastic-damage constitutive law developed by the authors has been implemented to improve the program capabilities in simulating the concrete behaviour. A R/C membrane element for two-dimensional problems and a R/C plate element for three-dimensional ones were defined and implemented. The reinforcing bars are simulated with a smeared approach such that multiple smeared layers with uniaxial stress-strain response can be simulated. A post-processing utility has been created permitting the interface with the pre- and post- processor GiD . Some showcases demonstrate both the ability of the model to simulate experimental tests and the potentiality of the enhanced OpenSEES for concrete and R/C inelastic analyses.
