Paper Title:
Simulation and Analysis for Externally Prestressed Concrete Bridge Based on ANSYS
  Abstract

The externally prestressed bridge finite element analysis module redeveloped based on ANSYS software is introduced,realizing finite element analysis method for externally prestressed concrete bridge. It is able to build the externally prestressed bridge finite element model, combined with Solid65 and Solid45 simulated concrete, and Link8 or Link10 simulated prestressed tendon. It is also able to bring material and geometric nonlinear effects into the analysis, for analyzing ultimate bearing capacity and local stress characterization of the externally prestressed structure. A bridge model is generated as an example for verifying the application of the module. Based on it, the model then is equipped with different allocation arrangements of internal and external tendons to analyze the mechanical characteristics of externally prestressed concrete bridge. Research is conducted for the effect on ultimate bearing capacity by allocation arrangement of tendons, and providing design suggestion and theoretic basis.
