NUMERICAL PROBLEMS IN NONLINEAR ANALYSIS OF REINFORCED CONCRETE

This investigation covers an intensive study of numerical problems encountered in the application of the computer program NOTACS (Nonlinear Time-dependent Analysis of Concrete Structures) in the nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete structures. Axial, beam, and slab structures are studied with special emphasis on the influence of various convergence criteria on the final results obtained.
