Load Carrying Capacity of Steel Arch Reinforcement Taking into Account the Geometrical and Physical Nonlinearity
The paper deals with the calculation of the load carrying capacity of the steel arch reinforcements of underground and mine works with respect to the resulting large displacement and physical nonlinearities. Solution is based on the application of the so-called effective bending stiffness, which is defined as a function of the axial force and bending moment. The numerical model was verified using the values of the load carrying capacity, which have been experimentally obtained using strain-stress test, and implemented into the software that allows very effectively calculate load carrying capacity of steel arch reinforcements.
