Experimental Study and Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Inorganic Polymer Concrete Beam
The stress behavior of the reinforced inorganic polymer concrete(IPC) beam was discussed, included the load-deflection curve, craze load and ultimate bearing capacity under the static load function through the method of the experimental study and the non-linear finite element analysis. Compared the data of the experiment with the results of the finite element analysis, it indicates that the reinforced IPC beam owns higher ductility ratio and better deformation capacity on the same loading condition. Meanwhile, the cracks of IPC beam develop more slowly than the normal ones, there were less and smaller cracks on IPC beam. The research results offer the theoretical and experimental references for engineering practice and design index of IPC.
