Conference paper


The computer programme for the analysis of plane reinforced concrete structures, which is developed at our Engineering Computing Centre, is described in this paper. The programme concerns reinforced concrete structures with straight and curvilinear elements and enables us to find the displacements and internal member forces according to the first and second order theory, taking into account creep and shrinkage effects of concrete. The theoretical basis for this programme is very detailly described in the authors previous works ((5),(6)(7)), and here will be presented the basic formulae only. The finite element method in isoparametric formulation is used in this analysis and this computer programme is written out in FORTRAN programming language and adopted for the DEC 20 computing system.
