Paper Title:
Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Column Using a Beam-Column Element with a Meshed Section
  Abstract

A efficient 3D reinforced-concrete beam element based on the flexibility method and distributed nonlinearity theory is proposed, The sections of the beam element are divided into the plane isoparametric elements in this formulation, the section stiffness matrices are calculated through the integration of stress-strain relations of concrete including reinforcing steel effect in the section. The flexibility matrices of the sections are calculated by inverting the stiffness matrices, and the element flexibility matrix is formed through the force interpolation functions. The element stiffness matrix is evaluated through the element flexibility matrix. Finally, the buckling behaviors of a reinforced concrete beam under various eccentric loads are analyzed with the proposed formulation to illustrate its accuracy and computational efficiency.
