Study on Constructional Reinforcement for the Foundation of Blast Furnace due to Temperature Effect
Based on the test and numerical analysis, the paper studied the constructional reinforcement of blast furnace foundation under the influence of concrete hydration and top temperature. The results indicate that constructional reinforcement should be thinner and have a small spacing. Stress concentration always appears around the corner and constraints of blast furnace foundation, where should be strengthened with constructional reinforcements. In order to prevent cracks caused by internal tensile stress during concrete hardening, it is necessary to place temperature reinforcement inside the foundation. Temperature effect should be considered at the circular area on top of blast furnace foundation and should be strengthened with constructional reinforcements.
