Finite Element Analysis on the Blast Resistant Performance of Multibarrel Tube-Confined Concrete Column in Different Cross-Sections
Based on the finite element analysis software ANSYS/LS-DYNA, this paper numerically analyzed the dynamic performance of MTCCCs with different cross sections under blast load, followed by the study and comparison on the differences of the detonation wave propagation and failure modes between the columns in circular cross section and square cross section. The results show: The blast resistant performance of the circular component is more superior than the square component for its better aerodynamic shape that can greatly reduce the impact of the detonation wave on the column; The main difference of the failure modes between the circular and square cross-sectional components under blast load lies in the different failure mode of the outer steel tube. The simulation results in this paper can provide some references for the blast resisting design of MTCCCs.
