Assessment of critical load situations during the life cycle of concrete structures

Abstract: In dimensioning reinforced concrete structures in accordance with EC2, an alternative method of describing the system load-bearing behaviour is by nonlinear simulations over significant periods of the life cycle. The realistic reinforced concrete FE model presented here takes into account nonlinear material laws for concrete and steel, fracture behaviour and composite action as well as viscous behaviour (nonlinear creep and shrinkage). Considering the example of a reinforced concrete box-type folded plate structure, critical loading situations (especially high shear loads) were investigated which lead to system failure at different times in the life cycle of the structure. System load-bearing reserves are clearly indicated by resultant stress redistributions.
