Abstract

Quasi static finite element analysis (FEA) was conducted on precast lightweight foamed concrete sandwich panel (PLFP) using ABAQUS/Explicit module to study its structural behavior. The PLFP subjected to axial load was simulated under perfect and imperfect conditions. Results from the FEA were validated with experimental data accurately. The analysis produced ultimate load carrying capacity, damage criteria and vertical and horizontal displacement. It was found that the proposed finite element model for PLFP with perfect and imperfection conditions can predict the structural behavior of PLFP accurately. Therefore, a computational study by using FEA can be used as an economical alternative tool to replace the experimental study of structural behavior of PLFP.
