Influences of Dimension Parameters on the Compression Performance of FRP Rubber Bearings
FRP rubber bearing was developed just almost 10 years ago, and it is characterized by less weight, lower cost, and better damping capacity. In this paper, the concept of the FRP rubber bearing is introduced first, and a finite element simulation of the bearing is presented then. At last the effects of dimension parameters on the compression performance of FRP rubber bearing are investigated, including the tensile stresses of the FRP plates and the vertical stiffness of the bearing. The influence laws of the dimension parameters are preliminarily concluded, and which can be taken as a reference for the design of FRP rubber bearings.
