Title: SP-205: Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures
Author(s): Editors: Kaspar William and Tada-aki Tanabe
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 399
Nonlinear finite element analysis (NLFEA) of reinforced concrete is close to being a practical tool for everyday use by design engineers. The first in this collection of 18 papers takes a critical look at the accuracy of this analysis procedure, then identifies and discusses reasons for caution in applying nonlinear analysis methods. Subsequent papers cover topics that include: * Seismic behavior predictions of structures; * Three-dimensional cyclic analysis of compressive diagonal shear failure; * Finite element analysis of shear columns; and * Simulation strategies to predict seismic response of reinforced concrete structures. Designers and researchers who use NLFEA models and procedures for reinforced concrete must be experienced and cautious. The papers in this volume will enable the users to better understand modeling, analysis, and interpretation of results.
