Sir, I have reduced the mesh sizing to about 3mm however, I am still getting a lot of variation between results. Can you give me an idea of how to model the most realistic contact between FRP and concrete.? what would be the best value for Friction constant, or even normal stifness or even if I am getting any parameters wrong. Do you have an idea of how to calculate orthotropic properties of FRP?
