Description

Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Composite and Reinforced Concrete Beams presents advanced methods and techniques for the analysis of composite and FRP reinforced concrete beams. The title introduces detailed numerical modeling methods and the modeling of the structural behavior of composite beams, including critical interfacial bond-slip behavior. It covers a new family of composite beam elements developed by the authors. Other sections cover nonlinear finite element analysis procedures and the numerical modeling techniques used in commercial finite element software that will be of particular interest to engineers and researchers executing numerical simulations.

    Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Composite and Reinforced Concrete Beams

    Excellent and worth reading Book.. All researcher must go through it. But only problem program in appendix F not running because module_name and Call Input data are missing. Atleast one sample input file may be given to run the program
