Software Integration of Safety Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structure Considering Temperature during Construction

The reinforced concrete structure during construction is a time-dependent structure consisting of a partly-completed structure and a formwork shore system. During construction, the time-dependent structure may be under the most vulnerable stress state and accidents may occur. For safety control, new structural models and analysis methods are proposed to simulate load transfer and demonstrate the influence of daily temperature variation. A new software - Safety Analysis during Construction Considering Temperature (SACT) - is developed. SACT is suitable for analyzing reinforced concrete frames, slab-column systems, and shear wall structures. SACT is developed using modular techniques and object-oriented techniques. Since each module is object-oriented and designed in C++ language, the system development is much less complicated. After comparing with field test data, a good agreement has been observed. The proposed software, SACT, can provide accurate simulation of reinforced structures during construction under various circumstance. It is also a convenient software for construction safety control in practice.
