Paper Title:
Analysis of Ultimate Load-Bearing Capacity of Long-Span CFST Arch Bridges
  Abstract

In order to study the ultimate load-bearing capacity of the long-span concrete-filled steel tubular (CFST) arch bridge with fly-bird-type, the ANSYS finite element program was used to establish its special model, and to study ultimate load-bearing capacity of this bridge with three different methods. The constitutive relation factors of concrete-filled steel tubular was taken into consideration including confining effect ultimate load coefficients, failure modes, and load-displacement curves of this bridge under different cases. The result indicate that the ultimate load-bearing capacity of the bridge can meet the requirement, all of its failure modes is out-plane, the two methods, linear elastic buckling analysis and only geometric nonlinearity analysis, will over high estimate ultimate load-bearing capacity of this bridge, and linear elastic buckling method cannot reflect real failure mode of this structure. In order to correctly estimate the ultimate load-bearing capacity of the bridge structure, the effect of geometric and material double nonlinearity couldn’t be neglected.
