Topic: atena sfrc beam

hi
I am working with atena3Dv5 what material shall i choose for steel fibre reinforced concrete beam--
for concrete 3D non linear cementitious 2 i have taken with default parameters
for steel plates-3D elastic isotropic
for steel fibres what shall i take??

Re: atena sfrc beam

Dear preetwalia07,
please see ATENA Troubleshooting, 2.2.3 How can I model Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC, UHPC, SHCC) in ATENA? for basic recommendations related to modelling fibre reinforced concrete. The document is included in ATENA installation (PDF) and its current version is also available for download from our web (Products - ATENA - Documentation).
Regards.

Re: atena sfrc beam

In atena documentation,frc has been done in GiD ,so i have to prepare sfrc beam in GiD can i not use atena 3D v 5

Re: atena sfrc beam

Dear preetwalia07,
the options recommended for representing FRC, smeared reinforcement and the Cem2User material model (as is the simplest option of just adjusting the fracture energy in the Cem2 material model), are available in both ATENA Engineering and ATENA Science.
Therefore, you can choose ATENA Egr or Sci based on other factors (curved geometry, advanced models for creep/shrinkage, thermal /moisture transport, dynamics analysis, ...) or your preferences.

Regards.
