FLEXURAL BEHAVIOR OFREINFORCED AND PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BEAMSUSING FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
 byAnthony J. Wolanski, B.S.A Thesis submitted to theFaculty of the Graduate School,Marquette University,in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Master of ScienceMilwaukee, WisconsinMay, 2004
 
PREFACE
Several methods have been utilized to study the response of concrete structuralcomponents. Experimental based testing has been widely used as a means to analyzeindividual elements and the effects of concrete strength under loading. The use of finiteelement analysis to study these components has also been used.This thesis is a study of reinforced and prestressed concrete beams using finiteelement analysis to understand their load-deflection response. A reinforced concrete beam model is studied and compared to experimental data.The parameters for the reinforced concrete model were then used to model a prestressed concrete beam.Characteristic points on the load-deformation response curve predicted using finite element analysis were compared to theoretical (hand-calculated)results.Conclusions were then made as to the accuracy of using finite element modelingfor analysis of concrete. The results compared well to experimental and hand calculated.
 
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
This research was performed under the supervision of Dr. Christopher M. Foley. I amextremely grateful for the guidance, knowledge, understanding, and numerous hoursspent helping me complete this thesis. Appreciation is also extended to my thesiscommittee, Dr. Stephen M. Heinrich and Dr. Baolin Wan, for their time and efforts.I would like to thank my parents, John and Sue Wolanski, my brother, JohnWolanski, and my sister, Christine Wolanski for their understanding, encouragement andsupport. Without my family these accomplishments would not have been possible.
