Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete - Civil Engineering

Different codes have prescribed some empirical relations to determine the Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete. Few of them are given below. According to ACI 318-08 section 8.5, Modulus of elasticity for concrete, Ec =w1.50 c ×0.043√f ′ c M P a E c = w c 1.50 × 0.043 f c ′ M P a. This formula is valid for values of w c between 1440 and

Cracking causes a softening behavior in plain concrete. As cracking progresses, concrete loses its stiffness at a relatively high rate.

Torsional Rigidities of Reinforced Concrete Beams

Abstract—Reinforced concrete (RC) beams rarely undergo lateral-torsional buckling (LTB), since these beams possess large lateral bending and torsional rigidities owing to their stocky crosssections, unlike steel beams. However, the problem of LTB is becoming more and more pronounced in the last decades as the span lengths of concrete beams increase and the cross-sections become more slender

Recommendations for finite element analysis for the design

The finite element method is commonly used to design the reinforcement in concrete slabs. In order to simplify the analysis and to be able to use the superposition principle for evaluating the effect of load combinations, linear analysis is generally adopted even though concrete slabs normally have a pronounced non-linear response.
