Abstract:
This paper deals with the analysis of reinforced concrete structures subjected to seismic loading. The expressions of two constitutive relations based on damage mechanics are exposed. Physical behavior such as crack closure and frictional sliding are introduced at the local level and their influences towards structural computations (global damping) are exemplified by comparisons with experimental data.
