Abstract—In this study, nonlinear finite element modeling of plain and reinforced concrete was studied. Several parameters affecting the modeling of reinforced concrete were discussed. Commercial ABAQUS software package along with the concrete damaged plasticity model was suggested to be used for the modeling of reinforced concrete structural members. Compressive and tensile uniaxial stress-strain relationship as well as damage parameter curves for concrete material to be effectively used in ABAQUS were suggested. The performance of the suggested constitutive and damage models was verified with a simple nonlinear model. The analysis results were quite promising.
