Finite Element Analysis on Mechanical Properties of Light-Weight Aggregate Concrete Composite Slab
By finite element method, experimental results of the light-weight aggregate concrete composite slab are compared with the numerical simulation.. On the basis, nine composite slab specimen are designed. The loading process, includes the slab cracking, the yielding of steel plates, damaging of slabs are simulated, and the influencing factors, such as male pin, thickness of deck, and spacing of transverse shear reinforcing bars, etc. is studied. At last, the spacing of transverse shear reinforcing bars of light-weight aggregate concrete composite slab is given, and it is useful to the engineering design.
