Influence of Segmented Construction Methods on the Prestressed State of Truss String Structure Roof of Xinjiang Exhibition Center
Taking Xinjiang Exhibition Center Roof as an example, three models ("No construction stage" model, "Stretching on the ground" model and "Flow construction stage" model) were set up and analyzed with consideration of different segmented construction methods. The results show that the effect of the segmented construction method on the prestressed state of long-span truss string structures is significant. For the "No construction stage" model, the maximal cable force during construction is the largest among three models, while there are great differences between each cable force. However, the maximal displacement of sliding ends is the smallest among three models. For the "Stretching on the ground" model, the tension control force is the most uniform. This is because the cable of every truss is pre-tensioned independently, which causes no influence on other cables. For the "Flow construction stage" model, the maximal displacement of sliding ends and the uniformity of cable forces of the truss string structures are between those given by the other two models.
