Numerical modeling of an orthotropic RC slab band system using the Barcelona model
Pawel G. Kossakowski and Izabela Uzarska

 
Abstract
    Numerical modeling of reinforced concrete structures is a difficult engineering problem, primarily because of the material inhomogeneity. The behaviour of a concrete element with reinforcement can be analyzed using, for example, the Barcelona model, which according to the literature, is one of the most suitable models for this purpose. This article compares the experimental data obtained for an orthotropic concrete slab band system with those predicted numerically using Concrete Damage Plasticity model. Abaqus package was used to perform the calculations.
