Finite Element Analysis of Embedded Parts with Big-Diameter Reinforcing Bar under Shear Force
Nowadays embedded parts which connect steel members with concrete structures have frequently emerged in civil engineering; however the existing design code for embedded parts cannot satisfy the increasing demand of engineering as it was derived from limited experiments. In the paper, a finite element study on embedded parts with big-diameter reinforcing bars under shear force is conducted. The aim of the study was to fully investigate the mechanical performances of embedded parts under shear force using a three-dimensional finite element analysis with the help of a commercial software ANSYS. Cross-section internal force of anchor bar, embedded part deformation, interaction force between anchor bar and concrete, and friction force were investigated in order to well know the system response. The results show that the shear capacity of embedded part obtained from finite element analysis is conservative.
