The Numerical Analysis of Thermally-Induced Damage of Concrete Bridge in Fire
High temperature in fire have serious influences on the structural behavior of reinforced concrete structure, and causes damage in structure, even leads to overall collapse. By thermal and structural analysis using finite element method, the whole-course behavior of a reinforced concrete bridge in fire is simulated, and the transient temperature field, deformation and stress is discussed. These information supply the basis for fire resistance of concrete bridge design.
