Title: Computer Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): M. Z. Cohn, Fuat Erbatur, and P.D. Bhat
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 28-32
Keywords: computer programs; deformation; elastic limit; failure mechanisms;

reinforced concrete; structural analysis.
Abstract:Some aspects of nonlinear inelastic analysis of skeletal reinforced concrete structures are discussed, and the capabilities of a computer program (STRUPL 1) developed by the authors are illustrated. The historical analysis of a reinforced concrete frame for various loading conditions is presented. Structural response is characterized by elastic, inelastic, and total nodal displacements; elastic, inelastic, and total stress iesultants; as well as inelastic strain resultants. Information such as elastic limit reponse, ultimate deformations, collapse load factors, and collapse mechanism is determined and discussed.
