Time-History Analysis of Seismic Response for the Concrete-Filled Steel Tubular Wind Turbine Tower Based on Finite Element Method
In the article based on the geometric characteristics of the tower and force characteristics, the author designs the concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) 3 limbs column tower, and establishes finite element model of the tower. We carry on time history analysis of the concrete-filled steel tubular wind turbine tower based on finite element method when the earthquake wave is different. Under rare earthquake, the majority bars of the concrete-filled steel tube 3 limbs column tower are in the elastic stage, only a small number of bars in the top and the bottom are into the plastic phase. The post-seismic displacement at the top of tower is 1.1m which is slightly less than the tower height of 1 / 50 (1.26m) and meets the seismic requirements of the region. The analytical result may provide the foundational test data and advice for the design of the CFST wind turbine tower.
