Design of the Columns of one Passenger Station in HongKong
A passenger station in Hongkong with a special structure whose roof is supported by nine mega columns which are linked in the middle by joints. The conventional design standard are inapplicable and alternatively for this structure, the design of the supporting columns of the passenger stations was verified by both finite element analysis and manual calculations. The results are consistent with each other.
