Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of an R/C Frame Under Lateral Loading
AbstractRecent developments in computer technology have made possible the use of finite element methods for 3D modeling and analysis of reinforced concrete structures. In this study, the failure behavior and crack formation of an R/C frame under monotonic and reversed-cyclic lateral loading are studied by 3D nonlinear finite element analysis using ANSYS software. Modeling the nonlinear behavior of concrete material as well as the reinforcing steel embedded within concrete is a difficult task. Different methodologies and modeling options are considered in the computer model. The application of reversed cyclic displacement loading and the execution of nonlinear analyses are explained in detail. Load-displacement relationships and concrete crack profiles are obtained in order to compare with the experimental data and observed crack profile. The analysis results compared well with the experimental data based on the comparison of load-displacement graphs. The failure mode of the frame is identified by the crack profiles displayed on the structure.
