Modeling and influence of shear retention parameter on the response of reinforced concrete structural elements

Dahmani, L. and Khennane, A. and Kaci, S. (2009) Modeling and influence of shear retention parameter on the response of reinforced concrete structural elements. Strength of Materials, 41 (4). pp. 423-430. ISSN 0039-2316


To obtain the complete solutions describing the balance of a reinforced concrete structure, it is necessary to introduce a behavioral law characterizing the physical properties of material. The goal of this work is to study the response of reinforced concrete elements by taking into account the variation of the shear retention parameter (aggregate interlock) and the mesh density. The concrete
was assumed as elastic-plastic material and follow the Drucker–Prager failure criterion with associated flow rule, the steel reinforcements were assumed to be elastic-perfectly plastic. The numerical results obtained are compared with other results available in the literature.
