Study on the Best Reinforcement Arrangement of Thick-Walled Cylinder
In order to improve the ultimate bearing capacity, In this paper, the theory of functionally graded material is introduced. This paper simulate thick-walled cylinder with functionally graded characteristics through the analysis of using different reinforced ways along the radial direction. The author analyzes the stress state of the thick-walled cylinder with plain concrete and three different reinforced ways under the radical uniform load. Comparisons and evaluations are provided based on ANSYS results. The paper provide a reasonable reinforced way that is a larger reinforcement ratio near the outer and a smaller reinforcement ratio near the inner and is different with the traditional way. But the worst reinforcement arrangement is that a larger reinforcement ratio near the inner and a smaller reinforcement ratio near the outer. The conclusion shows that the principle that larger reinforcement ratio should be adopted where the tangential stress is larger is not suitable to the thick-walled cylinder.
