Abstract or Summary
  • This thesis project provides a guiding framework for the structural analysis portion of the National Concrete Canoe Competition (NCCC). Step-by-step instructions on how to 3-dimensionally model a “standard” sized concrete canoe in AutoCAD Civil 3D, import the model into SAP2000, and proceed to analyze the canoe with the SAP2000 finite element analysis program are provided. Various hand calculations, reality checks, comparisons to the actual performance of previous canoes, and comparisons with similar concrete canoe analyses are used to justify the applicability of the outlined procedure. Recommendations for future research and how the analysis should affect mix design and paddler location to prevent structural failure are also offered
