Abstract

The concept of dapped-end beams is expansively used in buildings and other structures as well as it provide better lateral stability. The design of dapped-end connections is an important consideration in a precast concrete structure even though its analysis is complex. Moreover, the implication of the Concorde Bridge incident has attracted many researchers and this collapse prompted detailed investigation of structural analysis for Dapped-end Beam whereby the determination of the maximum load capacity of this structure is very crucial for the sake of the next designing purpose. Therefore, this project aims to determine the failure load of the Dapped-end Beam by using this sophisticated two-dimensional non-linear finite element analysis program called VecTor2 and a data from an experiment which has been done by other researchers, will be used for corroboration. In this study, 5 specimens of the Dapped-end Beam were tested to obtain the load capacity and identify the part of this structure that contributes more to failure. As the results, most of these specimens were failed at the diagonal tension at re-entrant corner of this structure. Besides that, the comparison shows that the proposed
