Research on the Mechanical Properties of Concrete Members under Holding Load
In order to study the bearing capacity conditions of the reinforced concrete structure in service in the phase of using,test the mechanical properties of the bending members of reinforced concrete structures under loading and not loading conditions,and compare and analyze the relationship of load and deflection, crack, steel strain,concrete face strain under the two conditions,has got the conclusion that the bearing capacity decreased almost 12% under holding load, and analyze the effect of the bearing capacity and deformation under holding load; use ABAQUS finite element to simulate bending members of reinforced concrete structures under holding loading,and the simulation values are very close to the experimental results; indicate that finite element simulation can be carried out in prediction the service life of reinforced concrete structure in practical engineering.
