The report is a support for the study of structural behavior
under certain loads.
First, simply suported steel beams and simply supported reinforced
concrete beams, under uniformly distributed loads, are
analyzed, by both analytical and numerical methods. Second,
embedded columns and multy-storey structures, made out rst
of steel and then reinforced concrete, are studied.
The analytical equations are derived according to the theory
involved and then encoded in Matlab so they can be used
in then future for other similar problems. For the numerical
analysis, two Finite Element programs are used, i.e. Abaqus
and a 2D code created in Matlab.
The report is a useful tool for the ones who want to study
in detail reinforced concrete sections, plastic behavior, and
also for the ones who want to learn how to model structures
subjected to seismic loads in Abaqus, by means of accelerograms.
The report is supported by a DVD. Its content can also be requested
