A new analytical algorithm for determining the elastoplastic parameters for soft, medium and hard plastic cohesive soils, corresponding to *MAT_005_SOIL_AND_FOAM material model available LS-Dyna FE code, was formulated. The numerical modelling of the post-soil subsystem, applicable in the modelling of road safety barrier crash tests using this material model of the roadside dehydrated ground, was developed. The methodology was presented on the example of a Sigma-100 steel post partly driven into the soil and subjected...
This research aims to study the fastening rotation behavior of cold-formed steel screw connections by experimental testing and analytical modelling. Both the experimental test and finite element results showed the failure modes of tilting and bearing failure. The rotation failure mode of the screw connection was studied by an analytical method using a spring model with screw-plate stiffness which included the bending and shear stiffness of the screw and the bearing stiffness of the screw...
Theoretical and Numerical Analyses of an Aluminium-Concrete Composite Beam with Channel Shear ConnectorsŁukasz POLUS & Maciej SZUMIGAŁA
This paper presents a numerical simulation and a theoretical investigation of an aluminiumconcrete composite (ACC) beam subjected to bending. ACC structures are similar to steel-concrete composite (SCC) structures. However, their girders are made of aluminium instead of steel. The use of ACC structures is limited because of the lack of relevant design rules. Due to this fact the authors suggest applying the theory for SCC structures to ACC structures. In this paper, the methods for...
Investigations on Tensile and Flexural Characteristics of Fly Ash and Banana Fiber-Reinforced Epoxy Matrix CompositesVenkatachalam GOPALAN, Shashank Kumar SHARMA, Anil Kumar JANGID, Vignesh PRAGASAM, Nilesh SATONKAR & Pandivelan CHINNAIYAN
Polymer matrix composites (PMCs) generally use the inorganic and non-biodegradable materials as reinforcements. This paper presents a PMC with reinforcement of fly ash and banana fiber. The epoxy resin is used as a matrix. This paper investigates the influences of the percentage of fly ash, the percentage of banana fiber and the size of banana fiber on tensile and flexural behaviors of fly ash and banana fiber reinforced epoxy matrix composite. Taguchi’s orthogonal array is...
In this paper, we investigate the problem of the dynamic behaviour of a double-beam system with intermediate elastic restraints subjected to a moving point force. Problem is solved by replacing this type of structure with two single-span beams loaded with a given moving force and redundant forces representing reactions in the intermediate restraints. Redundant forces are obtained by solving Volterra integral equations of the second order which are compatibility equations corresponding to each redundant. Solutions...
The Effect of Strength Differential on Material Effort and Lifetime of Steam Turbine Rotors Under Thermo-Mechanical LoadMariusz BANASZKIEWICZ, Waldemar DUDDA & Janusz BADUR
The paper presents the results of experimental tests and numerical simulations related with the strength differential effect. Tensile and compression tests on 2CrMoV low-alloy steel are performed to evaluate the magnitude of the yield stress difference in tension and compression. The strength differential parameter is then used in the formula for equivalent stress proposed by Burzynski. The material effort calculated using Burzynski and Huber-Mises-Hencky hypotheses was compared for different start-stop cycles. Analytical notch stress-strain correction...
