Topic: Mesh of RC Frame

Good morning,

I'm trying simulate a reinforced concrete frame in atena GID (2D) with lateral displacement and vertical load.

I obtained any results similar with experimental tests. Now, i changed my model for fine mesh with the aim of obtain better the crack pattern, but my model stop before finish the simulation. Guess, that with fine mesh the stiffness is higher and maybe the convergence isn't very good. How could help this case.

Hello, the stifness is higher with coarse mesh usually.. Please send us your model by email... thanks
