Nonlinear Behaviour of Concrete Foundation Slab


Article Preview

A layered model is used for nonlinear analysis of a foundation concrete slab. Calculation is performed using interaction with elastic Winkler-Pasternak subsoil model and considering plastic yielding of slab layers. Two Drucker-Prager yield criterions define a nonlinear material model for concrete. Computation is done by the SIFEL solver using the Finite Element Method.
