Paper Title:
Limit Bearing Capacity Analysis of Structure System with Different Types of Element Using Elastic Modulus Reduction Method
  Abstract

Limit bearing capacity analysis of structure system with different types of element (SSDE) is difficult to elastic modulus adjustment procedures. In this paper, elastic modulus reduction method (EMRM) is introduced for evaluation of the limit bearing capacity of SSDE, using the element bearing ratio (EBR) as the governing parameter. As a dimensionless quantity, the EBR can be used to measure the bearing state of every element, and the scheme of reducing elastic modulus can be expressed using a uniform equation for different types of element. When the structure system destroys, all elements will tend to reach their own strength. The algorithm is then extended to the plastic limit analysis of SSDE. Numerical examples are employed to demonstrate the applicability, accuracy and efficiency of the method.
