Rebar modelling in MIDAS FEA NX

Question:


Hi, 


We notice the rebar properties options is removed from MIDAS FEA NX which is previously include in MIDAS FEA.  


I am not sure which property shall we use to create rebar in the model using MIDAS FEA NX. Is that embedded truss properties can be used for reinforcement properties or any other way to create rebar properties? Appreciate if you could advise us on the rebar modelling or share with us on the relevant tutorial.



Answer:

Hi,

Yes. Embedded truss elements should be used. Please refer to the attached sample model.

Dear DK LEE,

Thanks for the model and it is useful. I notice the longitudinal rebar is assigned as Truss elements while shear link is assigned as embedded truss element.  In what situation we shall use truss element or embedded truss element? 


Sorry. I didn't notice it. I changed the property from truss to embedded truss. Model file is attached here. Unlike you want to see the bond slip of the reinforcement, embedded truss element is recommended.
