 Abstract
A numerical model for the thermal response analysis of concrete structures is suggested. The model includes the stress-strain relationship, constitutive relationship, and multiaxial failure criteria at elevated temperature conditions. Modified Saenz's model was used to describe the stress-strain relationship at high temperatures. Concrete subjected to elevated temperatures undergoes rapid strain increase and dimensional instability. In order to explain those changes in mechanical properties, a constitutive model of concrete subjected to elevated temperature is proposed. The model consists of four strain components; free thermal creep strain, stress-induced (mechanical) strain, thermal creep strain, and transient strain due to moisture effects. The failure model employs modified Drucker-Prager model in order to describe the temperature dependent multiaxial failure criteria. Some numerical analyses are performed and compared with the experimental results to verify the proposed model. According to the comparison, the suggested material model gives reliable analytical results.
