Topic: Discrete Reinforcement Embedded in Solid Elements

Hi!

I would like to present a study of punching shear capacity of flat concrete slab-column connections.
How can generate discrete reinforecment to 3D nonlinear/linear elemnts with shear stiffness (ATENA_Theory 10.2.3 is not enough for me)?

Thanks in advance

Re: Discrete Reinforcement Embedded in Solid Elements

Hey,
you would better check user guides and tutorials if you want to model something in ATENA. Theory will not help you with the modeling.

Also I recommend to watch videos at youtube. Moreover, there are sample models of punching zone which are included in standard installation package.

maybe your question was about something else though... please clarify.
