Several nonlinear simulations of concrete and reinforced concrete slabs are performed using a layered model. Two Drucker-Prager criteria are employed to form a concrete plasticity model that is used for simulating the plastic yielding of layers. Moreover, an interaction with elastic Winkler-Pasternak subsoil model is considered for the case of a reinforced concrete foundation slab that is subjected to a concentrated loading force. All computations are done by the SIFEL solver using finite element method.

Multi-layer metamodeling is a metamodeling method that provides great flexibility for domain prototyping, while it also ensures rigid validation of domain rules. Visualization of multi-layer models would be essential in order to promote this new modeling technique in industrial setups; however, the traditional way of representing model entities is not sufficient here. Dynamic Multi-Layer Algebra is a multi-layer metamodeling approach that addressed the challenges of multi-layer modeling, but uses a text-based language to create models. This paper presents Dynamo, a visual notation for Dynamic Multi-Layer Algebra, which is also applicable to other multi-layer metamodeling approaches. The paper elaborates the graphical syntax and the design decisions.
layeredmodel [ 7 ]. The plastic theory illustrates this behavior by a stress-strain diagram of the materials. Analyzing structures using the elastic method considers that failure occurs if any point reached to the limit stress, hence elastic based design
