Modelling of high strength concrete reinforced with helical reinforcement

Abstract


  • This paper investigates the behaviour of high strength concrete beams reinforced

    with helical reinforcement in the compression zone. Using helical reinforcement

    increases the strength and ductility of high strength concrete. The finite element

    packages ANSYS and Strand7 have been used to model high strength concrete

    beams with helical pitches of 25, 50, 75, 100 and 150 mm. Three dimensional

    elements were used to model the concrete and bar elements to model the steel.

    Special care had to be taken when modelling the helices. The results of finite

    element analyses were compared with experimental results which showed a good

    correlation.
