Abstract
- The wide majority of reinforced concrete structures are made of structural 1D or 2D elements such as beams, columns, slabs or walls, for which design methods are well known since decades, largely detailed in the literature such as EC2 or FIB Model Code [1, 2], and based on the fact that the knowledge of internal forces (moments, axial and shear forces) naturally lead to the values of the reinforcement. However, a minority of structures is characterized by a more or less complex three-dimensional geometry, for which a FEM analysis with 3D finite elements must be done, giving, as a result of the computation, the values of stresses inside de volume and not any mo...
