Enriched elasto-plastic beam model

Abstract : This thesis work is presented in the framework of a scientific partnership between Laboratoire Navier and the french start-up STRAINS. Believing in the need for new methodologies in structural analysis, STRAINS is developing a new software dedicated to the structural analysis of bridges. In this context, this work suggests new tools for the analysis of slender structures.The higher-order elastic beam element developed by cite{Ferradi2016} is first extended to the case of eigenstrains, enabling the model to deal with various physical phenomena such as creep, prestress or thermal loads. An enriched kinematics is used to capture the local response of the structure. Different examples highlight the local accuracy of the model and its fast computational performances. The model is also extended to plasticity in small perturbations. Considering the plastic strains developing in the structure as eigenstrains, the previous works are used to derive a higher-order elastoplastic kinematics.Finally, a new elastoplastic beam element for reinforced concrete is suggested. The concrete material is described by using the elastoplastic beam model developed previously while steel rebars are modeled by one dimensional bar elements. This method enables a fine local description of the concrete behavior and an accurate representation of the reinforcement. The validity of computations is assessed thanks to energy considerations
