Abstract:

This work presents a model to predict the flexural behavior of reinforced concrete slabs, combining the Mazars damage model for simulation of the loss of stiffness of the concrete during the cracking process and the Classical Theory of Laminates, to govern the bending of the structural element. A variational formulation based on the principle of virtual work was developed for the model, and then treated numerically according to the Finite Difference Energy Method, with the end result a program developed in Fortran. To validate the model thus proposed have been simulated with the program, some cases of slabs in flexure in the literature. The evaluation of the results obtained in this study demonstrated the capability of the model, in view of the good predictability of the behavior of slabs in flexure, sweeping the path of equilibrium to the rupture of the structural element. Besides the satisfactory prediction of the behavior observed as positive aspects of the model to its relative simplicity and reduced number of experimental parameters necessary for modeling.
