The seminar will show several methods for modelling reinforcement and pre-stressing in the new ATENA v5.7. Generally there are two types of reinforcement model in ATENA: smeared and discrete. In the smeared model, the reinforcement is considered in a smeared way basically as a composite material consisting of concrete and reinforcement. The second discrete model can treat each reinforcement individually. In the discrete model, the pre-stressing can be applied. The discrete model allows the consideration of bond between reinforcement and concrete. The bond model can be also used for the calculation of pre-stressing losses. The webinar will go over the reinforcement models available in ATENA, and how they can be used to simulate pre-stressing including the calculation of pre-stressing losses

The first topic of this new series of webinars will be devoted to the selected new features of the latest ATENA version 5.7. The focus of this first seminar will be the new durability modules that allow you to model long term deterioration effects on reinforced concrete structures such as chloride ingress or carbonation and the resulting reinforcement corrosion. For those not yet familiar with ATENA we will provide a brief overview of the model preparation, unique runtime visualization of results or concrete cracking visualization in the post-processor. There will be, of course, some space for questions at the end of the session. Jan Cervenka, our CEO, will be happy to respond to them.
