In this tutorial, the simulation composite column(steel beam and concrete)under cyclic loading in Abaqus has been studied. The steel beam and the concrete parts are modeled as three-dimensional solid parts. You can see a figure of the assembled parts at below
The steel material is used for the steel beam as elastic-plastic material with ductile damage criterion to consider damage and failure during cyclic loading. The concrete is modeled as elastic material with concrete damaged plasticity(CDP) to predict tensile and compression damage. The general static step was used with ideal or perfect contact between the steel beam and concrete column surfaces. The fixed boundary condition for the bottom side of the composite column and displacement with tabular amplitude to assign the loading protocol for the top side is selected. The mesh should be fine and it needs some partitions for both parts.
After the simulation tensile and compression damage for concrete, stress, and strain for the steel beam and concrete ….can be available. You can see some figures for the result below
