The paper presents the outcomes of the research aimed at the verification of the computational model simulating a reinforced concrete beam employing spar and 3D finite elements, with account taken of physical nonlinearity. Structural calculations involved in R&D and design effort must factor in non-linear structural behavior both of the material and of structural elements. In particular, this is valid for the analysis of special types of impact (seismic, accidental etc.). However, design models under development may incorporate significantly varying models of nonlinear materials as well as different kinds of finite elements, and both have to be verified. This article considers two models of a hinged (pinned) beam. In the first case, the modeling was based on 3D elements for concrete and on spar elements for reinforcement using Euler-Lagrange coupling of finite elements belonging to concrete and reinforcement (three-dimensional model). The second case the simulation based on spar finite elements (spar model). Both the spar model and 3D model allow for non-linear nature of concrete and reinforcement. In case of concrete the material was set using the Continuous Surface Cap Model, while the reinforcement was modeled involving a bilinear diagram of material behavior.
