The substructuring concept has been used in different forms such as in hybrid simulation and parallel computing methods, all contributing significantly to experimental testing and numerical analysis research programs. In this paper, unlike previous studies, the main goal is to use the substructuring technique to develop a framework which expands the capabilities of current nonlinear programs, enabling detailed analysis of mixed-type reinforced concrete (RC) systems in an integrated fashion, to… 

Application of Multi-Scale Modelling on Large Shear-Critical Reinforced Concrete Structural Systems Repaired with FRP Sheets

Background: Numerical studies on the shear behavior of reinforced concrete (RC) structures repaired with fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) sheets are relatively limited because of the complexity of the

Distributed analysis of interacting soil and structural systems under dynamic loading

Accurate, verifiable, and efficient analytical models for interacting soil and structure systems are still very challenging. While geotechnical software usually has limited capacity for structural

Modeling Beam-Membrane Interface in Reinforced Concrete Frames

Multi-scale analysis, which involves combining advanced elements with computationally fast elements, is an effective method for assessing the behavior of large structures with deficient or complex

INTEGRATED ANALYSIS OF REINFORCED CONCRETE COLUMNS RETROFITTED WITH FIBRE-REINFORCED POLYMER

Use of fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) in the strengthening of seismic-deficient columns is becoming increasingly common; however, the nonlinear analysis of frame structures containing such members

Multi-platform Hybrid (Experiment-Analysis) Simulations

The hybrid simulation method refers to a simulation method in which at least one substructure is experimentally tested or numerically simulated, which is integrated with a numerical model of the rest

Mixed-Type Modeling of Structures with Slender and Deep Beam Elements

The nonlinear analysis of reinforced concrete frame structures with slender members can be performed accurately and efficiently with one-dimensional (1-D) elements based on the

Development of Integrated Framework for Distributed Multi-Platform Simulation

A simulation example with soil-structure interaction analysis using the proposed simulation framework is presented, which focuses on the definition of flexible data exchange formats and a communication protocol through which any potential integration modules and substructure modules will be interoperable.

A Generalized Numerical/Experimental Distributed Simulation Framework

A generalized distributed simulation framework that has been developed at the University of Toronto is characterized by the ability to integrate diverse numerical integration and substructure modules and experimental specimens through a standardized data-exchange format and a communication protocol.

A graphical user interface for stand-alone and mixed-type modelling of reinforced concrete structures

A brief overview of the FormWorks-Plus structure is presented, followed by a detailed explanation of the main features of the program, which can address the limitations associated with most frame type analyses.
