Project ID:FHWA-PROJ-09-0001
Project Name: Ultra-High Performance Concrete Material Model
Status: Completed
Contact:
Last Name:Graybeal
First Name:Benjamin A (Ben)
Telephone:202-493-3122
E-mail:benjamin.graybeal@dot.gov
Office: Office of Infrastructure Research and Development
Team:Bridge and Foundation Engineering Team
Roadmap/Focus area(s): Infrastructure Research and Technology Strategic Plan and Roadmap
Project Description:This projects aims to develop an ultra-high performance concrete material model for use within Abaqus, which is a suite of general purpose nonlinear finite element analysis programs.
Laboratories: Structures Laboratory
Start Date: January 1, 2009
End Date: September 30, 2010
Goals:Develop ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) material model to facilitate computational modeling of structural systems containing UHPC components.
Test Methodology: Engage results from physical testing completed at Turner-Fairbank Highway Research Center to develop a nonlinear material model widely applicable to ultra-high performance concrete components.
Other Information: Development of this material model will facilitate the development of structural systems that can address significant needs in highway structures.
