Abstract

Reinforced concrete is a kind of typical composite and reinforced concrete structure is widely used in the construction of a kind of structure, the flexural-tensile properties is very important for structure design optimization. In this study, the 2 dimensional numerical model of reinforced concrete beam is established by using ANSYS software and the effects of the thickness of the protective layer, the reinforcement ratio and the size of the specimen on the flexural performance of reinforced concrete beams are studied. The research shows that the failure of reinforced concrete beams is started in the middle and bottom of the beam and the influence of the specimen size on the failure load is the most significant, the mid-span stress increases with the decrease of thickness of protective layer and reinforcement ratio.
