Abstract

Abstract In this paper a numerical model is presented for assessing the stress and displacement state of RC structures with textile post-reinforcement. The physical nonlinear computational model is based on layered hybrid finite elements with assumed stress distribution, which are extended by the introduction of an arbitrary number of discrete, coupled parallel reference planes in such a way that deformations perpendicular to the reference planes and shear deformations along the interfaces between the layers may be taken into account on a discrete basis. Besides a verification of the method on the basis of experimental results, practical application possibilities are also demonstrated.
