Estimation Theory on Cable’s Diameter in Pre-Stressed Mega Brace and Steel Frame Structure
According to the superposition principle of building structure, the lateral deformation mode of pre-stressed mega bracing-steel frame structure was analyzed, then the relation between the structural maximum inter-story drift and cross section area of cable was further established. Based on the area of cable derived by the design target value of inter-story drift, the qualitative estimation theory on cross section area of the cable is finally determined.
