Polimeru, Vijay Kumar (2015) Flexural Analysis of FRP Strengthened RCC Beams Using Meshless Local Petrov Galerkin Method (MLPG). MTech thesis.
In this project Meshless local Petrov Galerkin (MLPG) method is utilized for the flexural analysis of simply supported RCC beams strengthened with FRP laminates. This method uses the moving least-squares (MLS) approximation with different weight functions to interpolate the field variables and uses a local symmetric weak form (LSWF). The beams under consideration are rectangular and T-beams reinforced either on tension face or on both faces as per IS 456:2000. The proposed method is first applied to unstrengthened beam to check its applicability. The computed displacements are in good accord with the displacements attained using code formula. Then, it is extended to beams strengthened with FRP laminate. A parametric study is carried out to study the effect of disparity of field nodes in the global domain, integration cells in the sub domain and young`s modulus on the displacement. The efficiency of the algorithm developed is verified.
