“Finite Element Analysis of CFRP Strengthened Hollow circular Steel Section”.


The circular hollow steel section is widely used in structural and non-structural elements, on off shower and on shower buildings. More excellent properties of the tubular shape with regard to loading in tension, compression, bending in all directions. To increase the strength and durability of steel structure, The section according to the class 4 according to the euro code 3,EN 10219-2:2006(E) Cold form steel section, 300mm diameter, 800mm length hollow circular steel section. The different fibres combination is called as tow sheets (one layer of glass sheet placed between two carbon sheets.). The finite element software (Using ABAQUSE software) under axial loading is determined.
