2008 (English)In: Nordic Concrete Research: Research projects 2008 / [ed] J. Silfwerbrand, 2008, 202-203 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
Shear type failure in concrete is often complicated to calculate due to its brittle nature. The strongly non-linear behaviour results in a significant drop in load carrying capacity which usually leads to numerical convergence difficulties. There are several different constitutive models developed to describe the behaviour of concrete. A realistic model of the concrete behaviour enables accurate simulation of actual structural behaviour in service and in ultimate limit state. In this paper non-linear finite element (FE) analyses of concrete beams subjected to in-plane forces resulting in a shear type failure are analysed with different continuum based concrete models.
