Hybrid Composite Beam




Hybrid Composite Beam, Compression Reinforcement, Tension Reinforcement


The use of "Hybrid-Composite Beam” or HCB, in the field of bridge engineering, gained a lot of attention. The HCB is made up of three main sub-components that are a composite shell, compression reinforcement, and tension reinforcement. only a limited number of researchers have studied in HCB. For its essential design methodologies and long-term performance. Here the power of finite element analysis is employed to derive a novel method from doing such analysis. ANSYS is used as the simulation tool for the analysis since it is one of the best proven FEA software in the world. It is decided to conduct a static structural analysis oh HCB and thereby obtaining HCB having better load carrying capacity. It is decided to conduct a parameter optimization for varying thickness of scc web and arch thickness. The expected results focused on the minimum equivalent stress and total deformation.
