I want to test a program that performs FRP concrete structural strengthening calculations according to a particular design code.

As inputs for these calculation, there is

  • existing concrete cross section
  • concrete compressive strength
  • existing steel cross section
  • initial live and dead loads
  • future dead and live loads after strengthening

I am looking for the best models that describe these random variables. Could you advise on this matter ?

  • $\begingroup$ This question is far too broad. Which "particular design code"? Which sorts of loads (any load configuration?)? What exactly do you intend to model? It's also somewhat unclear: as I understand it, you have a program and you want help determining reasonable values for each of these variables, is that it? $\endgroup$ – Wasabi Jul 12 at 1:00
