Analysis of Mechanical Performance Considering Damage Accumulation of Intersecting Joints in Steel Structures
The mechanical behaviors of intersecting joints considering damage accumulation in steel tube structures is analyzed through the FE-program ABAQUS. The stress characteristic and failure modes of these joints are concluded. Especially, it has been analyzed influence of the change of geometric parameters to mechanical behavior of joints. Finally, the results indicate the joints have a good mechanical performance and good plastic deformation as to excessive local buckling of chord under the loads.
