Abstract:
Finite element analysis is not revolutionary in its own right. However, its use in concrete building structures has historically been spasmodic. The 3 key benefits of such analysis are being able to avoid costly structural rationalisation by relatively crude alternative methods of analysis, to enhance the buildability of structures by reducing material contents, and to ultimately permit the successful analysis of challenging structural problems. This paper describes Connell Mott MacDonald.s experience in the innovative application of finite element analysis in concrete building Structures.
