Finite Element Modeling of Reinforced Concrete Corners Under Opening Bending Moment

Finite Element Modeling of Reinforced Concrete Corners Under Opening Bending Moment In the past few years, there has been growing use of finite element method for analysis of RCC structures to eliminate the expensive testing. However, validations of numerical models are instrumental towards making models reliable, which is, fundamental towards truly predictive prototyping. Keeping this in view, paper presents the results of numerical study of Reinforced Concrete Corners under opening moments using general-purpose finite element analysis software (ANSYS) and the comparison of results to the experimental results available in the literature [Singh and Kaushik, J Inst Eng (India), 84:201–209, 2003]. The Load deflection behaviour obtained is compared with the results corresponding to four different reinforcement detailing investigated experimentally [Singh and Kaushik, J Inst Eng (India), 84:201–209, 2003]. Details of the FE modeling of Reinforced Concrete Corners with four different reinforcement detailing have been presented. The best reinforcement detailing of Reinforced Concrete Corners on the basis of load deflection behaviour has been judged and advocated further on the basis of finite element analysis. The second phase of the study, investigates the effect of diameter of main steel, grade of concrete and spacing of shear reinforcement on load deformation behavior of the corners under opening bending moments. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of The Institution of Engineers (India): Series A Springer Journals

Abstract

In the past few years, there has been growing use of finite element method for analysis of RCC structures to eliminate the expensive testing. However, validations of numerical models are instrumental towards making models reliable, which is, fundamental towards truly predictive prototyping. Keeping this in view, paper presents the results of numerical study of Reinforced Concrete Corners under opening moments using general-purpose finite element analysis software (ANSYS) and the comparison of results to the experimental results available in the literature [Singh and Kaushik, J Inst Eng (India), 84:201–209, 2003]. The Load deflection behaviour obtained is compared with the results corresponding to four different reinforcement detailing investigated experimentally [Singh and Kaushik, J Inst Eng (India), 84:201–209, 2003]. Details of the FE modeling of Reinforced Concrete Corners with four different reinforcement detailing have been presented. The best reinforcement detailing of Reinforced Concrete Corners on the basis of load deflection behaviour has been judged and advocated further on the basis of finite element analysis. The second phase of the study, investigates the effect of diameter of main steel, grade of concrete and spacing of shear reinforcement on load deformation behavior of the corners under opening bending moments.
