Paper Title:
Numerical Study on Energy Dissipation and Hysteretic Behavior of Plate-Reinforced Connections
  Abstract

14 models of plate-reinforced connections are analyzed by finite element software ANSYS. Failure mode, hysteretic behavior, ductility and energy dissipation capacity are comparatively studied. Results show that plastic hinge formed at the end of the reinforced plate, hysteretic cruves are full and the connections have good ductility. With the increase in length and thickness of the reinforced plate, bearing capacity increases while hysteretic behavior and ductility factor decrease. If the reinforced plate is longer than the length that design requires, brittle failure occurs in the panel zone. The recommended length of the reinforced plate is defined as 0.5-0.8 times of beam depth, the thickness of flange-plate is 1.2-1.4 times of flange thickness and the thickness of cover-plate is 0.7-1.2 times of flange thickness.
