Force Behavior of Outer Annular-Stiffener Type Steel Castellated Beam-Concrete Filled Steel Tuber
The force behavior of outer annular-stiffener type steel castellated beam (OATSCB) - concrete filled steel tube (CFST) is analyzed, and the feasibility of this kind of join is discussed. The loading process of the joint is simulated by using finite element software. By analyzing the hysteretic loops, skeleton curves, energy dissipation coefficient, equivalent viscous damping coefficient and ductility coefficient, the bearing capacity and seismic performance of this type of joint is studied. Before simulation, the validity of the simulation method is verified by using the previous experiment data of outer annular-stiffener type steel beam (OATSB) - CFST. It shows that the results from the finite element simulation method and the experiment are similar to each other, and the hysteretic loops is plump , the energy dissipation coefficient, equivalent viscous damping coefficient and ductility coefficient of this type of joint are high. It can be seen that this type of joint has good mechanical properties, and is easy to realize the yield mechanism of strong column weak beam.
