The book presents the concepts of generation and analysis of models of multi-storey buildings in MONOMAKH software version 4.2, and for analysis and design of structural elements of buildings – walls, columns, beams, floor slabs, foundation slabs, etc.
The book focuses on theory of Finite Element Method as the main analysis tool. The book also deals with convergence matters, evaluation of approximate solution, peculiar features in application of FEM for different types of structures. Nonlinear problems including physical (material) and geometric nonlinearity, one-way springs, friction, stability, nonlinear dynamics are considered in the book.
This is a tutorial on preparing the first and the second term papers for reinforced concrete structures. The book focuses upon static and structural analyses of the main load bearing structures in multi-storey building, mutual arrangement of elements, etc.
