 Summary:
 ANSYS is one of the most widely used programs for FEM analyses of civil engineering structures in both practical and research applications. It’s vast element and material libraries enable modeling of different kinds of structures made of various materials subjected to various loading conditions. One especially attractive feature of ANSYS that particularly appeals to researchers is the possibility of adding custom features that are not present in the default ANSYS installation. This paper presents an example of implementation of Darwin and Pecknold’s inelastic model for cyclic biaxial loading of reinforced concrete into ANSYS. The correctness of the implementation is confirmed by comparing the numerical results of the analyses of RC members with the available experimental data.
