Paper Abstract

In this paper the structural behavior of reinforced concrete (RC) beams with smart rebars under three point loading system has been numerically studied, using Finite Element Method. The material used in this study is Superelastic Shape Memory Alloy (SE SMA) which contains nickel and titanium. Shape memory alloys (SMAs) are a unique class of materials which have ability to undergo large deformation and also regain their un-deformed shape by removal of stress or by heating. In this study, a uniaxial SMA model is able to reproduce the pseudo-elastic behavior for the reinforcing SMA wires. Finite element simulation is developed in order to study the load-deflection behavior of smart concrete beams subjected to three-point bending tests.
