The Passive Energy-Dissipation Study of Braced Steel Frame Structure

Abstract:

Article Preview

The seismic performance of braced steel frame was simulated by the finite element software ANSYS based on the passive energy-dissipation under the low-cycle repeated load and the time-history analysis under seismic load for the energy-dissipation braced steel frame structure, no-brace steel frame structure, and conventional braced frame structure. The energy dissipation and seismic performance of three kinds of frame were compared, the results show that the energy-dissipation braced structure can produce strong energy-dissipation control force to enhance energy dissipation capacity of the whole structure significantly, and weaken the seismic load of the main frame. It follows that the energy-dissipation braced steel frame can achieve the purpose of energy dissipation for structure, and has good seismic performance.
