The Effect on The Overall Performance of Frame Structure of Local Column Destruction
How to ensure the whole stability of structure and avoid progressive collapse of structure caused by destruction of local structures under accidental loading have been paid close attention to extensively by researchers all over the world. According to GSA guidelines, FEM model of 3-D frame structure was established by ANSYS software. Failure of frame structure local column is simulated with the method of "killing" columns of long side, short side, corner side, and interior side, and two columns of long sides, in order to explore the regularity for change of series performance parameters when the frame structure suffering accidental loading. And the alternative load path method was used to analyse the collapse of reinforced concrete frame structure. The result indicates that the frame structure local column damage can make structure basic natural vibration period and maximum interlayer displacement angle larger, and make minimum ratio between shearing force and weight smaller, and if two columns of long side are destroyed, the progressive collapse of frame structure will occur.
