Abstract:

This report describes the mathematical model and the solution process which form the basis of the computer program SINGER. The function of SINGER is to predict the behavior of plane skeletal reinforced concrete structures in their environments. Of primary interest is the transient nonlinear response including element failures and structural collapse. The structure is represented by a discrete model composed of line elements models of partial joint releases. The line elements admit geometric and physical nonlinearities they can predict the behavior of reinforced concrete members subject to axial and flexural distortions up to failure. The state of the element is characterized by its internal energy.
