Computer Simulation Research on Dislocation Steel Joints Used in Rebuilding Ancient Tower
For rebuilding an ancient tower at province Gansu, the structure of dislocation steel joints was used make the tower having filtering contraction shape. For this kind of dislocation steel joints structure, there are no relevant calculation regulations in the Code for design of steel structures in China. To investigate the mechanical characteristics of the joints and ensure the safety of the joints and the whole structure under the applied and seismic load, the computer simulation research on the dislocation steel joint was carried out according to the design requirement. Under the extensive analysis the comprehensive understanding of the mechanical characteristics of the dislocation steel joints was obtained and the reference basis for design was provided.
