Design and Analysis of Failure Strength of Composite I-Beam

Mr. Mahesh Mane, Mr. Mohd Imran Ansari


Most of the chemical industries, the steel is coated with Polyurethane (PU) on steel sample which is found that some chemical reaction and rusted in acidic bath solution so there is very big problem in industry. The above problem is reduced by using the reinforced epoxy glass fiber composite material. In this investigation the results revealed that, Araldite 2015 have used in this composite material the maximum stress at web-flange junction (WFJ) is 10.797MPA which indicate that maximum stress as compared to Hundstman Araldite, the maximum stress value of 10.363MPA, which is improved the failure strength on the web-flange junction. The numerical analysis results clearly indicate that the emersion of the reinforced epoxy glass fibre in the acidic bath solution for a certain period for no any reaction with acidic bath and improving the behaviour of the specimen.
