reinforced concrete earthquake response with FEM
I am a student currently working on my Master's thesis. I am supposed to model a reinforced concrete wall-slab connection undergoing seismic loading. I read an article where this was done with ANSYS. However, my experience with ANSYS is non-existent so I was wondering are there any tutorials on how to model the reinforcement or do a time-history analysis (preferably both)? I'm supposed to test connection configurations and then conclude whether or not they're suitable for seismic detailing. ANY help would be deeply appreciated!
