Topic: Modelling four point bending test using coding software
I'm simulating a four point bending situation on a reinforced concrete slab using symmetry. I've applied an overlay of high strength concrete over the existing RC slab and have to study the interface between these layers. I have to vary the cohesion and friction coefficients to obtain a rang of values for the shear capacity of the composite section. Is there any coding platform like MATLAB or python which can be used to develop a code for this purpose ?
