Performance of isotropic constitutive laws in simulating failure mechanisms in scaled RC beams

I. Marzec & J. Bobiński
Results of numerical calculations of reinforced concrete (RC) beams are presented. Based on experimental results on longitudinally reinforced specimens of different sizes and shapes are investigated. Four different continuum constitutive laws with isotropic softening are used: one defined within continuum damage mechanics, an elasto-plastic with the Rankine criterion in tension and the Drucker–Prager criterion in compression, a formulation coupling elasto-plasticity and damage mechanics and the concrete damaged plasticity (CDP) model implemented in Abaqus. In a...
