Dynamic Elasto-Plastic Analysis on the Steel Spatial Arch Truss with 120 m Span and 0.2 Rise-Span Ratio
The elasto-plastic dynamic response on the steel-pipe arch truss with 120 m span and 0.2 rise-span ratio is analyzed in this paper 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-Centro waves 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-Centro waves when applied in horizontal direction is 644 gal and is 375 gal when applied in vertical direction; The ratio of its maximal node horizontal displacement and its rise-height is 1/538, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 1.3 and the ratio of its bars with plastic hinge appearing when buckling is 3.28% when EL-Centro waves applied on structure in horizontal direction; The ratio of its maximal node vertical displacement and its structural rise-height is 1/1136, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 1.03 and the ratio of its bars with plastic hinge appearing when buckling is 1.5% when EL-Centro waves applied in vertical direction.
