I did a calculation on a simple beam (2500x150x200 mm, loading 100 kN)
No, I have no commercial 3d-FEM volume-element software. Thats why I love FC.
Code: Select all
**Steel thermal expansion coefficient chosen relaistically *MATERIAL, NAME=SolidMaterial *ELASTIC 210000, 0.300 *EXPANSION, ZERO=273. 12.0E-06 **Concrete thermal expansion coefficient artificially set at 0.0 *MATERIAL, NAME=SolidMaterial001 *ELASTIC 32000, 0.170 *EXPANSION, ZERO=273. 0.0E-06 *INITIAL CONDITIONS,TYPE=TEMPERATURE Nall,300. ......... **Temperature dropped by 50 degrees to shrink steel (concrete coefficient=0.0) *STEP *STATIC *TEMPERATURE Nall, 250.
I do not know of any commercial software nor of a paper which covers such a design method. This was the reason I started with FreeCAD FEM development. But up to know I could not find an workflow to get reasonable results.thschrader wrote: ↑Sat Nov 02, 1974 4:10 amMy opinion: there must be a possibility to set the paraview filters in correct order to get a good
estimation of the reinforcement from the FC-FEM calculation.
