Finite Element Study on Seismic Performance of Inclined Joint of Cold- Formed Steel with Plate
To understand the seismic performance of inclined joints with gusset plate between double C steel beam-column, in this paper, I used finite element method ABAQUS, and did a good performance in simulating seismic performance of inclined joints between double C steel beam-column. It executed six models by changing gusset-plate’s thickness and bolt space in this simulation. Elements of S4R can give a good description of cold-formed steel’s bearing-capacity, and coupling restriction simulated bolted connections well. This modeling method is facilitating, and the operation time of simulation is not long-playing, and calculation results are accurate. The results of this paper can give a reference to the engineering application of cold-formed thin-walled steel structure.
