How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Three–dimensional nonlinear finite–element models have been developed to investigate the loading–unloading–reloading behaviour of two reinforced–concrete beams under four–point bending using explicit dynamics in ABAQUS. The damaged–plasticity model proposed by Lubliner and collaborators was employed for the plain concrete, and elastic–perfectly pla...
Three-dimensional (3D) nonlinear finite–element (FE) models have been developed within the FE code ABAQUS to simulate the loading–unloading–reloading behaviour of full–scale reinforced concrete (RC) beams externally retrofitted with carbon–fibre–reinforced polymers (CFRP) sheets and tested under four–point bending. Engineers embarking on such types...
This paper presents a numerical investigation on the flexural behaviour of reinforced concrete beams under four-point bending. Three-dimensional nonlinear finite-elements models were developed using ABAQUS/Explicit. The 'Concrete Damaged Plasticity' model was used to model the concrete behaviour. Two different types of elements and meshes were empl...
To provide guidelines to advanced engineering analysts on how to choose optimal and reliable solution schemes and modelling options among those available for the 3D nonlinear simulation of reinforced–concrete structures retrofitted with carbon-fibre-reinforced polymers. The focus is on cases where the widely used ‘concrete damaged–plasticity’ model is employed to model concrete.
