Seismic Response of Cable Net Facade
Shaking table tests and theoretical analysis were conducted to study of the seismic response of cable net facade. Firstly dynamic response of cable net façade under earthquake was investigated with shaking table test. Then a numerical simulation model of cable net façade was built for the dynamic analysis .And then with this model the seismic response was analyzed theoretically. The study indicates that: the seismic response of the cable net with glass panels and the cable net on most occasions are mainly decided by the symmetric modes, and the first vibration mode is dominant. The damping of cable net facade is mainly decided by glass panels.
