Validation of Finite Element Modeling for Wide and Shallow Reinforced Concrete Beams

Dr. Salah R. Al Zaidee, Abdulraheem K. Awad

Abstract: This paper aims to validate an ABAQUS finite element model for analysis of wide and shallow reinforced concrete beams. The validation has been achieved through comparison of load deflection curves of the finite element model with those obtained from experimental works of another researcher. After reviewing of related literature, and the experimental work, the finite element model has been prepared in a step-by-step approach. Comparison between load-deflection curves obtained from finite element model with those of experimental works indicates good agreement such that the proposed model can be adopted in future for further studies.
