Aseismic Analysis on a Strengthened Chinese Ancient Building by Simulation

Article Preview

In order to protect Chinese ancient buildings,a Qing Dynasty building in Sichuan province was taken as example to study its aseismic characters after strengthened. By ANSYS program,semi-rigid character of tenon-mortise joint as well as contact between wooden constitution and walls were simulated.Then by modal analysis basic frequency as well as main modes of the structure were obtained;By response spectrum analysis inner forces as well as displacements of the structure under 7-degree intensity of seldomly occurred earthquakes were obtained.Results show that after strengthened,main modes of the structure are of translation;Under 7-degree intensity of seldomly occurred earthquakes peak values of displacement as well as inner forces of the strengthened building are all within permissible scopes,which proves its good aseismic characters.
