Abstract Whilst currently existing modelling approaches of reinforced concrete behaviour allow a reasonably accurate prediction of flexural response, the determination of its shear counterpart needs further developments. There are various modelling strategies in literature able to predict the shear response and the shear-flexure coupling under monotonic loading conditions. However, very few are the reported models that have demonstrated successful results under cyclic loading, as in the seismic load case. These considerations lead to this research work focused on the development of a flexure-shear model for reinforced concrete beam-column elements. A reliable constitutive model for cracked reinforced concrete subjected to cyclic loading was implemented as bi-axial fibre constitutive model into a two-dimensional Timoshenko beam-column element. Aim of this research work is to arrive at the definition of a numerical model sufficiently accurate and, at the same time, computationally efficient, that will enable implementation within a Finite Element package for nonlinear dynamic analysis of existing non seismically designed RC structures that are prone to shear-induced damage and collapse.

Abstract

Abstract Whilst currently existing modelling approaches of reinforced concrete behaviour allow a reasonably accurate prediction of flexural response, the determination of its shear counterpart needs further developments. There are various modelling strategies in literature able to predict the shear response and the shear-flexure coupling under monotonic loading conditions. However, very few are the reported models that have demonstrated successful results under cyclic loading, as in the seismic load case. These considerations lead to this research work focused on the development of a flexure-shear model for reinforced concrete beam-column elements. A reliable constitutive model for cracked reinforced concrete subjected to cyclic loading was implemented as bi-axial fibre constitutive model into a two-dimensional Timoshenko beam-column element. Aim of this research work is to arrive at the definition of a numerical model sufficiently accurate and, at the same time, computationally efficient, that will enable implementation within a Finite Element package for nonlinear dynamic analysis of existing non seismically designed RC structures that are prone to shear-induced damage and collapse.
