A Pseudo-Space Model of Steel Staggered Truss System
A pseudo-space model as a new model of Steel Staggered Truss System was proposed to assess the transverse seismic performance of the structure. Modal analysis and pushover analysis were performed on the space model and the pseudo-space model of SSTS with SAP2000. Through comparing the results of models, it showed that the pseudo-space model reflected the lateral force characteristics of the original structure, and could simulate the stress mechanism of the structure under transverse seismic.
