Abstract:
Limit analysis provides a simple, rational and general framework for the ultimate limit state design of concrete structures. Starting from the basic constitutive relationships, this paper describes yield criteria for reinforced concrete elements and discusses the application of the static and kinematic methods of the theory of plasticity to reinforced concrete structures. In addition, supplementary deformation considerations are presented, including models for cracked tension chords and membranes.
