Hardeo, Pravendra and Karunasena, W. (Karu) ORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0003-3636-3068 (2006) Three dimensional finite element analysis of concrete filled FRP tubular model piles under lateral loads. In: International Composites Conference (ACUN-5), 11-14 July 2006, Sydney, Australia.


Abstract

An investigation of the lateral load capacity of model concrete filled FRP tubular composite piles was carried out. Model composite piles which formed a basis for the development of a three dimensional finite element model (FEM) using the ABAQUS analysis package were tested in a sand filled chamber at James Cook University. The results from the laboratory model piles and the FEM analysis provide a clear indication of the superiority of the FRP composite pile over its traditional counterpart under lateral load conditions.
