In-Plane Buckling Analysis of Gabled Arch Frame Steel Building
In order to study characteristics and rules of the in-plane stability for gabled arch frame steel building, a well-known FEA software package ANSYS has been used to calculate the in-plane buckling of a gabled arch frame which has a span of 30m. The linear and extreme point buckling loads have been obtained under the circumstances of different rise-span ratio, full-span and half-span distributed load and initial deficiency. Then the buckling path for this kind of structure has been given. Finally, the buckling deformation rules were proof and the influence of rise-span ratio, load conditions and initial deficiency were also discussed.
