Abstract:To overcome these limitations, an experimental and computational program was conducted. This research aimed to generate the data needed for evaluating and validating the STM approach, for advancing STM shape selection techniques, and also to develop more reliable computational models for predicting the response of cracked structural concrete. In addition, a design and analysis framework that enables for automated nonlinear FEA design validation is proposed that integrates the current STM design provisions with two additional components: (1) the shape selection technique of STM based on topology optimization and (2) the new automated nonlinear FEA tool that was specialized for modeling and analyzing complex D-Regions.
