Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Brick Wall with Opening Hole
Based on the result of investigation of farmer’s house in Beijing, a finite element model of reinforced brick wall with a open hole was established, using the ANSYS finite element analysis software. Besides, several reinforcement ways were compared and analyzed. The differences of the maximum displacement and the stress value of different models in the same force condition were discussed. As a result, we put forward a reference reinforcement model.
