NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF REINFORCED CONCRETE CONTINUOUS DEEP BEAMS

In order to investigate the behavior of statically indeterminate deep beams, a series of fourteen tests has been carried out. Variables were the slenderness, the ratio between top and bottom reinforcement, and the amount of shear reinforcement. Complementary to these experiments numerical simulations have been carried out. This paper focuses on the computational aspects. A good match between experimental behavior and numerical simulation was found over the entire range, which increases the confidence in the predictive capacity of non-linear finite element analysis.
