Description du poste

Ideol studies the opportunity to lighten local complex connections by implementing primary structure steel parts in the most stressed area.
The purpose of the proposed internship is to design, model and check the structural behavior of a typical steel to concrete connection. The model to be developed will encompass the effects of differential stiffness and friction/contact between the steel part and the concrete part of the connection.
The intern will participate to the study and will start from simple model and increase the complexity level of the connection to reach a full non-linear model built with solid elements. It will then be assessed whether the proposed design is relevant compared to proven field solutions making this master thesis a real challenge
