Abstract

The computational and simulation analysis of pull-out fiber reinforced concrete was investigated. The finite element analysis was used to make this modeling and analysis on this reinforced system and three parts (concrete matrix, the placed fiber reinforcement polymers (FRP), and resin layer) were studied. A constant load was directly applied on the free end of placed FRP and the deformation, von Mises stress, displacement, and strain of these three analyzed parts were obtained. Meanwhile, the specimen system of bonding strength and strain was calculated by the method of ABAQUS. The results showed that, with the constant load, the von Mises stress, deformation, and strain appeared in these three parts, and the maximum values in both FRP and resin layer were shown at the free end side, which provides an accurate description of the rupture mode.
