Abstract:
Prediction of the response of reinforced concrete structures to variations in temperature, humidity, and load is described. Modeling of structures, loading history, environment, and material behavior is discussed and several case studies are included to illustrate the use of proposed models. The models account for nonlinear behavior under variations in load and environment and for the non-homogeneity introduced by steel reinforcement and cracking of concrete.
