Part of: Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures II

Abstract: This chapter deals with those problems of finite element analysis of concrete structures, which arise from the dynamic nature of loadings. Following a short enumeration of the dynamic load categories that are of interest to engineers, the various rate-dependent material models are summarized. the discussion of member models is subdivided into micro and macro finite element models and the different kinds of models for frame elements (plastic hinge and fiber models), together with their hysteresis models for cyclic loads, and some comments on bond-slip and shear effects. Several numerical aspects of dynamic analysis are addressed, and a few examples conclude this chapter.
