Modeling of Reinforced Concrete Assemblies under Column

SpeedCore | American Institute of Steel Construction

Erection times using a reinforced concrete core can vary, but a pace of three to five days per floor is not uncommon.With SpeedCore, however, it's possible to build four floors--that's two tiers--in a week. SpeedCore is a non-proprietary system, so many American steel fabricators can produce the panels.

THREE-DIMENSIONAL MODELING OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES

A distinct feature of the present RC model is the inclusion of bond-slip in the context of embedded representation of reinforcement in 3D, which has been verified by analyzing a RC bar under uniaxial tension. Additional analyses of test specimens, including a beam-column-slab assembly, are presented to evaluate the merits of the current

Albert Kahn and his "Kahn-crete": The Revolutionization of

Oscar Niemeyer, an architect who explored the aesthetic possibilities of reinforced concrete, once said, "I deliberately disregarded the right angle and rationalist architecture designed with ruler and square to boldly enter the world of curves and straight lines offered by reinforced concrete" (The Curves of Time: The Memoirs of Oscar Niemeyer (2000), p. 62).

Modeling Reinforced-Concrete Beam-Column Joints Subjected

A model is developed to represent the response of reinforced-concrete beam-column joints under reversed-cyclic loading. The proposed model provides a simple representation of the primary inelastic

PDF Prepared by PCI Committee on Precast Sandwich Wall Panels

Precast/prestressed concrete sandwich wall panels are composed of two concrete wythes (layers) separated by a layer of rigid foam plastic insulation. One of the concrete wythes may be a standard shape, such as a flat slab, hollow-core section, double tee, or any custom architectural concrete section. In place, sandwich wall

BEHAVIOUR OF REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES IN FIRE

a reinforced concrete building is modelled as an assembly of finite beam-column and slab elements. It is assumed that the nodes of these different types of element are defined in a common reference plane, as shown in Fig. 1. The reference plane is assumed to coincide with the mid-surface of the concrete slab element.

Analytical investigation of reinforced concrete frames

A simplified theoretical model is developed in the present study in order to predict the general behavior and resistance of reinforced concrete frames under column removal scenarios. The proposed model defines the load–deflection response of the middle joint above the removed column based on a four-stage procedure: classical beam mechanism

SciELO - Brasil - Beam-Column Joints Reinforcement

For the exterior joints, the concrete compressive strength was 30 MPa and as the transverse reinforcement yield strength and its spacing affect the strength and ductility of confined concrete, in these simulations two concrete models are used; one for beams and columns elements in confined joint model and latter in unconfined one as presented
