Experimental Study and Numerical Analysis of CFRP Reinforced Beam Bending Performance


Article Preview

This paper describes both the development and the mechanism of carbon fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP), through Abaqus finite element software simulations to complete before and after joining the CFRP plate bending performance in two cases of RC beams, as well as in the loads of the load-displacement relations and stress-strain relationship, through the control of different pre-split value of working conditions, and the comparison of the data of the actual concrete beam experimental results prove that the Abaqus finite element of the feasibility and effectiveness in CFRP research, provide a reference for the actual project.
