The reinforced concrete structure is typical and widely used in many fields predominantly concerning civil engineering structures. The real behavior of concrete is nonlinear and complex. Especially due to the fact that cracks’ evolution and crushing occurs in softening phase. It is important to find a plasticity material model of concrete with high reliability in the numerical simulation. The nonlinear behavior of concrete is one of the most challenging task in the technical simulation utilized within civil engineering.
Nonlinear numerical simulation considering nonlinear material behavior of concrete has one and only primary objective – to get as close to real life structural response as possible.
