Finite Element Analysis of Behavior in Semi-Rigid Steel Frames
A two-span, three-story steel frame with two web and top-seat angle connections was constructed. Then a low-cycled reverse loading experiment with this frame was conducted to obtain elastic-plastic behavior of semi-rigid connections steel frame under cyclic loading. And nonlinear finite element analysis of steel frame with semi-rigid and rigid connection is performed in this paper. At last, comparisons between the analysis results and the testing results are carried out, the behavior and the effects of the two web and top-seat angles connections on steel frame are analyzed.
