The Finite Element Analysis on Axial Tensile Bearing Capacity of Round Steel-Tubes Reinforced with CFRP Sheets
The numerical simulation calculation on round steel-tubes reinforced with CFRP sheets was done through the large-scale finite element software ANSYS. In this research, four factors were comparatively analyzed so as to obtain the influence of them on ultimate axial tensile bearing capacity of steel-tubes. These four factors are longitudinal reinforcement length rate , thickness , elastic modulus and circumferential reinforcement ways of CFRP sheets. The results show that the ultimate axial tensile bearing capacity of steel-tubes strengthened with CFRP sheets is enhanced significantly and the reinforcement effect is very good.
