Supporting Effect and Economic Benefit Analysis on New Type Concrete-Filled Steel Tube Supports
The finite element contrast model such as concrete filled steel tube support, U-steel support and hollow steel tube support were established with ANSYS software, combining with engineering practice and relative design scheme of concrete filled steel tube test, respectively analysis their influencing factors and mechanical properties such as support effect, bearing capacity and so on. The economic benefit of each support was been analysised by comprehensive comparison of the material using condition and mechanical performance. The results show that, comparing with traditional U-steel support, retractable concrete filled steel tube support is a new style support with high bearing capacity, a large variety of sizes, higher economic benefit, and hence fit to support the deep soft rock broken jointed rock mass.
