Pull out test in Ansys (Workbench using Static Structural)
I want to model the pull out of a reinforcement bar from a concrete (cylindrical specimen). I have designed the ribbed pattern on the bar in Solidworks and need to do the simulation in Ansys. Anyone know how I can do this? I would like to apply a constant force on the bar:
- During a period of 2 minutes, steadily increase the axial force in the bar until the tensile stress in the bar reaches the yield stress (560MPa).
- Then I need to measure the Free-end slip of the bar
- Stress in the cylinder
Could someone give guidance to how I can do this?
