Wrinkling Analysis of Stiffness Equivalence in Membrane Structures
Based on the tension field theory, a wrinkling analysis method of equivalent stiffness was proposed. The new method was derived and the feasibility was theoretically proved. And a membrane structure was analyzed by the method. The results show that the correct load responses could be quickly attained right after appearance of wrinkled elements, which indicate that the method can be applied to wrinkling analysis of membrane structures.
