We will show three case studies of Fiber Reinforced Concrete applications with nonlinear analysis and design, which were carried out in collaboration with Carles Cots (FRC Europe Manager Development at Master Builders Solutions company):
– Cracking analysis of a FRC pavement considering shrinkage, ambient temperatures, and additional traffic loads.
– Precast modules for Architectural Facades.
– Precast tunnel lining segments.

About CivilFEM powered by Marc
Multipurpose finite element software for civil, structural and geotechnical engineering. This high-end software is suitable for all the types of advanced analyses performed in all construction and civil/structural sectors. This software is suitable for all the types of advanced analyses performed in all construction and civil/structural sectors.
Its unique features combine concrete and steel structure (Checking and Design) under the most important Codes and Standards with all nonlinearities. Additionally, it executes high accuracy and low computational costs; thus, reducing processing time and converging problems within complex models.
Nonlinear Concrete material model considers:
– Time dependent material properties.
– Cracking and post-cracking behavior: Hardening, softening, and residual stiffness.
– Crushing, creep and shrinkage.
– Nonlinear steel reinforcement.
– Bond-slippage between concrete and reinforcing steel.
– Thermal-structural coupled analysis for early age concrete (heat of hydration), fire analysis (thermal dependent material properties) or ambient temperature variation.
