Analysis of the Time-dependent Behaviour of Composite Cross-sections By Laplace-transform
|Published in:||Journal of Civil Engineering and Management, September 2005, n. 3, v. 11|
Composite structures consisting of precast and cast in‐situ concrete elements are increasingly common. These combinations demand a mechanical model which takes into account the time‐dependent behaviour and analysis of the different ages of the connected concrete components. The effect of creep and shrinkage of the different concrete components can be of relevance for the state of serviceability, as well as for the final state. The long‐time behaviour of concrete can be described by the rate‐of‐creep method, combined with a discretisation of time. The internal forces are described for each time interval using a system of linear differential equations, which can be solved by Laplace‐transform.
