Analysis of Shear Force Transfer Mechanism in Bridge Deck of SFRC-Steel Composite Girder
Based on tension-compression and bending equivalences, an equivalent single material plate is formed to substitute bridge deck of composite girder with steel fiber reinforced concrete (SFRC) and steel. Thickness and elastic modulus of the equivalent plate are then formulated. After three dimensional finite-element analyses of the bridge deck, in terms of shell element membrane effect and girder flexion-torsion theory, combined with compatibility of deformation, single material shell element stress is restored to stresses on SFRC plate and steel plate separately; shear force distribution on shear keys between SFRC and steel is analyzed.
