Application of Finite Element Method for Reinforced Concrete Ribbed Arch Aqueduct Structure Analysis
Reinforced concrete ribbed arch aqueduct’s bent is arranged symmetrically on the main arch, load which is transferred from bent to main arch is more homogenous. It can improve force conditions of main arch, and aqueduct is arranged on the bent. That also has the function of longitudinal beam. This paper adopts finite element method to carry out force analysis for Guanping reinforced concrete ribbed arch aqueduct, considering aqueduct weight, water pressure and earthquake effect, etc. researching stress and deformation distribution law of reinforced concrete ribbed arch aqueduct.
