A Strengthening model for concrete frames using diagonial tendons
In this work, a computational model suitable for analytical solution of frames with diagonal tendons is presented and checked experimentally. The comparison between computational and experimental model is carried out using dynamic loading. The transient dynamic analysis of the ANSYS program is used for the finite elements analysis. In the experimental process a plane strain model made of PMMA is used. This specimen represents a half space uniform soil in which a frame with diagonal tendons is founded. The stress pulse propagation in the specimen is studied by means of the optical method of caustics.
