Parameterized Concrete Beam

Application ID: 22051

Reinforced concrete beams are commonly used in modern construction due to their strength and durability. By simulating such beams, engineers can ensure that the resulting structures both perform well and are safe. With simulation apps, engineers of all levels of expertise can analyze and test different designs with ease.

The Parameterized Concrete Beam demo app focuses on the structural properties of arbitrary beam and rebar designs. App users have the option to modify a range of parameters such as geometric parameters of the beam, steel and concrete material properties, the distribution of the reinforcement bars, and boundary conditions at the beam's end.

Results show axial stress in concrete and beams, deflection, and regions where plasticity occurs.

This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
