Abstrakt

Paper deals with the stress concentration problem in civil engineering structures, especially damaged and possibility of their reduction using of polymer flexible joints. This aspect was analyzed based on a numerical model, as well as a simple bar model of flexible joint of nonlinear characteristic, which was described by linear constitutive equations.
