Study on Ultimate Load-Carrying Capacity of Long-Span Composite Girder Cable-Stayed Bridge with Three Pylons
Taking a long-span composite girder cable-stayed bridge with three pylons under construction as the object of research, this paper establishes a three-dimensional finite element model of a bridge considering the geometric nonlinearity, material nonlinearity and interface slip effect in composite girder, and analyzes the failure loads and failure modes of the structure at bearing capacity limited state. The results show that the ultimate load-carrying capacity is high at bearing capacity limited state, load case whose live load acts on one main span is more unfavorable, and according to the structural failure modes, increasing the ability of the middle pylon to resist bending moment can improve the ultimate load-carrying capacity of the whole bridge quickly.
