Thermal Stresses Simulation Analysis of Concrete Box Water Bridge under the Solar Radiation
The reasons why the producing of the difference in temperature distributing and thermal stresses of box aqueduct under solar radiation are analyzed. The difference in temperature distributing and thermal stresses are effectively simulated by the finite element software ANSYS.The calculation results indicate that concrete box aqueduct body inter-surface whatever along the longitudinal and transverse will produce considerable thermal stresses under solar radiation, and its value has exceeded the design of concrete tensile strength. Therefore, the thermal stresses under the solar radiation must be considered in the design of box aqueduct body structural. We should appropriately configure temperature reinforcing steel bar.
