The Finite Element Analysis of CLAC Beam
In this paper, a comprehensive numerical investigation is presented on the behaviour of ceramsite light aggregate concrete(CLAC) beam by the non-linear finite element method. The investigation includes the entire process of the beam from loading to failure. Numerical analysis results show that the flexural behavior of CLAC beam is obtained by numerical simulation,including load-deflection curve, cross section stress and crack development ect. Numerical simulation may replace the actual experiment for study on flexural behavior of CLAC beam.
