Hello everyone,

has anyone put a model for Shearwall using fiberglass in STKO?
Can you advice me how to model it using STKO.
Thank you for the Support.

Hi, STKO+OpenSees offers many material models to efficiently model the structural response of concrete with fiber glasses. You should refer to relevant literature (experimental work on fiber glass concrete) to understand its material properties and replicate them using appropriate uniaxial/multiaxial material models in STKO. For example, you can use ASDConcrete3D if you consider the shear as shell or solid element - the properties of the ASDConcrete3D should be input in accordance with the material characterization from the literature or your own lab tests. Nontheless, you can do a search in this forum for any discussion about modeling fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) structural components.
