  • On the issue of calculating the reinforcement in the junction of a beamless monolithic plate with a column

    The article discusses the results of the calculation of reinforcement in monolithic reinforced concrete floors. The subject of the study is the reinforcement of the slab section located next to the column. The study was carried out by setting up a computational experiment. Modeling was performed in software systems: Revit, Sapphire and Lira-CAD. Finite element models were calculated in Lira-CAD software. A total of 7 series of samples were calculated. The samples are a fragment of a monolithic reinforced concrete floor of a civil building. Investigated factors: triangulation parameters; the presence or absence of absolutely rigid bodies in the node. The authors performed a comparative analysis of the results of a computational experiment. It was found that for the most correct and economical selection of reinforcement in models without the use of AFL, it is desirable to take the triangulation step in the slab equal to the side of the column section or more than this value by no more than 15%, since an increase in the size of the finite elements leads to an underestimation of the reference moment and the resulting area calculation longitudinal working reinforcement. With this approach, the value of the maximum moment, and, therefore, the area obtained by the calculation of the reinforcement will be 6% higher, which makes it more preferable, although it increases the complexity of creating a finite element circuit.
