Parameterized Concrete Beam
Application ID: 22051
Reinforced concrete beams are commonly used in modern construction due to their strength and durability. By simulating such beams, engineers can ensure that the resulting structures both perform well and are safe. With simulation apps, engineers of all levels of expertise can analyze and test different designs with ease.
The Parameterized Concrete Beam demo app focuses on the structural properties of arbitrary beam and rebar designs. App users have the option to modify a range of parameters such as geometric parameters of the beam, steel and concrete material properties, the distribution of the reinforcement bars, and boundary conditions at the beam's end.
Results show axial stress in concrete and beams, deflection, and regions where plasticity occurs.
This application example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
