Parametric Analysis on the Optimal Dimensions of Steel Sleeve in Swaging Type Anchorage for CFRP Tendon
Abstract: This paper presents the parametric analysis conducted to derive the optimal dimensions of the steel sleeve necessary to secure the bond performance of the swaging type anchorage for CFRP tendon with diameter of 5 mm. To that goal, finite element analysis is performed on the parameters determining the dimensions of the sleeve like the thickness and inner diameters of the sleeve. The results show that a constant swaging pressure of about 450 MPa on the mean is distributed in the sleeve when the thickness ratio of the stress relief zone to the effective swaging zone of the sleeve is larger than 1.1 and that the swaging pressure tends to reduce linearly as much as this thickness ratio becomes smaller than 1.1. The pressure varies within a range of about 30% according to the change in the inner diameter of the sleeve whereas varies within a range less than 10% according to the change in the inner diameter when the thickness ratio is larger than 1.1. Finally, the optimal dimensions of the steel tube sleeve enabling to secure an anchor force larger than the rupture strength of the CFRP tendon with diameter of 5 mm are determined based upon the results of the parametric analysis.
