RC beam column joint wrapped with FRP sheets under cyclic loads

Hi all

 

I am currently in my Master Degree in Civil Engineering . I am doing a research on concrete wrapped FRP sheets  with seismic loads and I want to do Finite Element Analysis using ANSYS. I already model concrete in ANSYS. Can anyone please help me  how to apply CYCLIC LOADS to the model.

and is it  necessary to make contact between different parts of solid element or not?

 

Awaiting the reply....

 

Thank you

Regards

Hi

for modeling cyclic load, you must consider that the cyclic load constitute from multiple static load, you must apply one load with determined magnitude and direction, after runnig the static analysis, you must analyze the model with another magnitude and direction (for example with reverse direction). this method will go on until the cyclic load has been finished.
