Dynamic Elasto-Plastic Analysis on the Steel Spatial Arch Truss with 90m Span and 0.2 Rise-Span Ratio
In this paper, the elasto-plastic dynamic analysis on the steel spatial arch truss with 90m span and 0.2 rise-span ratio is carried out under earthquake wave with SAP2000. In the analyses, the geometric and material nonlinear effects are considered simultaneously based on the plastic-hinge theory. Under the action of EL-centro 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 X direction is 550gal, and is 675gal when applied in Z direction; The ratio of its maximal node horizontal displacement and its rise height is 1/635, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 1.262 and the ratio of its bars with plastic hinge appearing when buckling is 2.45% when EL-Centro waves applied on structure in X direction; The ratio of its maximal node vertical and its structural span is 1/99, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 19.207 and the ratio of its bars with plastic hinge appearing when buckling is 9.18% when EL-Centro waves applied in Z direction.
