Simulated Analysis for Strengthening RC Beam Bonding with External Steel Plate
Based on the reinforced concrete beam structure bonding with steel plate are consisted of different materials, the finite element model of the reinforced concrete beam structure bonding with steel plate was established using the whole model and the separated model respectively, the deformation, stress, strain and limit load of the reinforced concrete beam structure under the symmetrical concentrated load and the uniformly distributed load were studied using ANSYS. The research results show that the limit load value based on the finite element simulation is basically equal with the experimental value, there has little error between them, but within the scope of control in error, and the limit load under the uniformly distributed load is greater than the symmetrical concentrated load; The results from the whole model and the separated model are basically equal with the experimental results, which show that it’s feasible using the finite element simulation to analyze the reinforced concrete beam structure bonding with steel plate.
