Thorough constructing steel-plastic composite material model and using ANSYS finite element analysis software, this research make a CAE analysis and experimental verification to the elastic modulus and flexural modulus of reinforced HDPE composites under different steel structures. The research found that the tensile modulus of steel mash reinforced HDPE linearly increases with the increase of steel wire diameter and the number of steel wires on the specimen width. When the steel wire diameter is 3mm, the tensile modulus is up to 10 times of the pure HDPE’s. The number of steel wires on the specimen length does not affect the tensile modulus. Similarly, the flexural modulus of the composite material also linearly increases with the increase of steel wire diameter and the number of steel wires on the specimen width. However, when the steel wire diameter is 3mm, the flexural modulus is only 2 times of the pure HDPE’s. The data simulated by ANSYS software has a very good agreement with the experiment results. Therefore it can be applied to the actual design.
