Abstract

In the paper it is proposed a new version of the PARC_CL crack model for finite element analyses (NLFEA) of RC structures subjected to cyclic loads. The proposed model is an updated version of the previous PARC_CL model developed for loading-unloading and reloading conditions [1,2,3]. The secant unloading behavior implemented in the previous version of PARC_CL crack model was not able to adequately evaluate hysteretic cycles and plastic deformations. In the new PARC_CL2.0 version, proposed in the current paper, plastic deformations of elements subjected to plane stresses can be evaluated under alternate load cycles. The effectiveness of the model has been validated by comparing non-linear finite elements analyses (NLFEA) results with experimental tests on RC panels found in literature. NLFE analyses have been carried out by means of the ABAQUS code where PARC_CL model is implemented in the user subroutine UMAT.for.
