Dynamic Analysis of Slanting Type Five-Span Continuous CFST Arch Bridge without Wind Tied-Bracing
The concrete-filled steel tube (CFST) member has many advantages compared with the ordinary structural member made of steel or reinforced concrete. Continuous confinement provided by the steel tubes prevents excessive spalling of concrete and the concrete filled inside the steel tubes prohibits local inward buckling of the steel tube wall. This paper presents the dynamic response of a slanting type CFST arch bridge without wind tied-bracing. Effect of stiffness ratio between slanting arch and vertical arch on seismic performance was discussed.
