Finite Element Analysis Of Modified Conebolt Under Static And Dynamic Loadings
MetadataShow full item record
Axisymmetric finite element models are developed to simulate static pull test and dynamic drop test of MCB33 (modified conebolt with full dedonding) using ABAQUS. Results from the numerical models are in reasonable agreement with the test results. A parametric study is performed considering various variables (i.e. friction, cone angle, material strength, etc.) to analyze the performance of MCB33. The results demonstrate that friction between the steel and resin, cone angle, and the Poisson’s ratio of the resin affect the static and dynamic behaviors of the rockbolt. These parameters can be modified to improve the current design and enhance the overall performance of the rockbolt.
