Abstract

A specific finite element program is designed for the analysis of the behaviour of anchors in concrete structures under dynamic loading. Since the anchors can include an expanding tubular casing, large strains and large rotations are available including the contact with friction of three bodies : anchor, tubular casing and concrete. 1 Introduction The most of concrete structures need anchorage. In order to assess the safety of this type of structure, it is necessary to predict the mechanical response of the anchors and to evaluate their pull-out failure loads. Therefore, a specific finite element program, PLAST2, based on a dynamic explicit method and including large defo
