Topic: Interface failure test
I'm trying to simulate the interface failure test example provided in the documentation in ATENA 2D, Although I'm using same input conditions and keeping the boundary conditions also same, I'm not getting the correct/expected shear stress at the concrete-concrete interface.
Can you please help me with the following questions?
-Where are the monitoring points located in the analysis for plotting the load-displacement curve?
-What is the load step multiplier for both type of prescribed deformations; compression and lateral force?
-What is the solution method used for the analysis? Newton-Raphson or modified NR and how many iterations?
-What is the thickness of the macroelements and the interface?
-Will there be any difference in the results if instead of using SBETA material I'm using non linear cementitious 2 material properties?
These details are not provided in the manual.
Awaiting response on the above queries.
