Dynamic Elasto-Plastic Analysis on the Steel Spatial Arch Truss with 90 m Span and 0.3 Rise-Span Ratio
In this paper, the elasto-plastic dynamic analysis on the steel spatial arch truss with 90 m span and 0.3 rise-span ratio is carried out under earthquake wave with SAP2000. the geometric and material nonlinear effects are considered during the analysis simultaneously based on the plastic hinge theory. Under the action of EL wave with the peak increasing gradually, its elasto-plastic dynamic responses have been obtained. The results show that its failure mode under the earthquake action is elasto-plastic dynamic buckling; that its critical peak acceleration of EL earthquake wave when applied in horizontal direction is 363 gal, and is 408 gal when applied in vertical direction; The ratio of its maximal node horizontal displacement and its structural height is 1/796, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 1.06 and the ratio of its bars with plastic hinge appearing when buckling is 0.96% when EL-Centro waves applied on structure in horizontal direction; The ratio of its maximal node vertical displacement and its structural span is 1/1418, and its displacement ductility coefficient is1.12 and the ratio of its bars with plastic hinge appearing when buckling is 1.28% when EL-Centro waves applied in vertical direction.
