Finite Element Analysis of Concrete-to-Concrete Friction

Mohannad H. Al-Sherrawi [4] | Khalid S. Mahmoud


Abstract: This article is focused on the numerical analysis of the shear resistance at an interface between two concretes cast at different times, which performed by means of a nonlinear finite element program. A linkage element and an interface element had been used, in this study, to model the dowel action and the concrete shear transfer at the interface, respectively. The finite element idealization had been verified by the analysis of several specimens tested by others. The comparison shows a good concordance with the experimental results within acceptable ranges.
