This comprehensive state-of-the-art report contains a summary of the special features of finite element analysis applied to reinforced concrete, including: constitutive relationships, failure theories, multi-axial stress theories, modeling of reinforcement, behavior on the interface between reinforcement and concrete, crack representation, mechanisms of shear transfer, cyclic and dynamic loading effects, and the time-dependent effects of creep, shrinkage, and temperature variation. Alternative methods for incorporating these features are reviewed. Examples of recent applications are given, and comparisons are made between analytical results and observed behavior where such information is available. Computer programs that are generally available are referenced in an appendix.
