      Hello everyone, in which material model can the initial stress (prestressing) of the reinforcement be applied?

      The picture below is missing the Microplane.

      I cant think of any reason/limitation why the base material should affect pre-stressing of 1D reinforcements. But my experience with concrete modelling is limited. Maybe can help with this.
      Regards Ishan.

      Hi 1shan, I really appreciate your answer. I have experience in modeling concrete using the Microplane and Menetrey-Willam model, while I used - beam, link, reinforcement as reinforcement, for the initial stress I used Bolt pretension and the INISTATE command, but I could not get convergence.
