Introducing of Simple Version of WCOMD for Analyzing of RC Plate Elements Subject to Plane Stresses M. Soltani M. Concrete Lab., Dec. 2000

Reinforced concrete structures can be considered as an assemblage of simpler elements, if the behavior of the component elements is understood, then the behavior of the complete structure can be predicted more accurately. Introduction: Bridge Structure Beam Containment Vessel Shear Wall Tow dimensional, rectangular reinforced concrete element subject to plane stress.

Link Shear Key RC PANEL (SPECIMEN) Jack Experiment Methods: Test of panels Jack and Link assembly to apply shear,tension and compression to reinforced concrete elements Test of specimens under biaxial stress Direct tension Tension stiffening

Modeling method: The reinforced concrete plate model The constitutive law for concrete The constitutive law for reinforcing bars =+ Reinforced concrete Cracked concrete Reinforcing bars FEM analysis of RC Structures For checking the constitutive model at the element level under different loading condition and combination of lads (biaxial stress, Cyclic loading,…) 1. Using the equilibrium and compatibility equations. 2. Using FEM and analyzing of plate element by considering the adequate boundary conditions ~

Analyzing of plate elements subject to plane stresses: WCOMD-SJSimple version (PANEL) Capability of program: 1. 2D analysis of plate elements subject to different loading condition. 2. Analysis subject to reversed cyclic loading. 3. Load Control Analysis. Load Control Analysis: Loads (Tension, compression and shear) is incrementally applied on the panel You can get more information from the User Guide and solved examples

A Sample for Input Data: The panel (Collins and Vichico test 1982) f'c=195 ft=21 Rx=1.785% Fy=4580 Ry=1.524% Fy=4200 Loading= Pure Shear Output files: Input file name+.RCS (Strain Stress relationship of RC in X and Y dir.)

Today’s Topic Size effect

Shear strength=Vc+Vs Improving shear strength ： Larger concrete area More shear reinforcement Shear strength by experimental results: Main reinforcement Shear reinforcement Area Vc Effective depth (m)
