Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis on Frame Joints of Steel Truss SRC Beam
To understand mechanical characteristics of frame joints of steel truss SRC beam, the accuracy of the proposed method is proved by the comparison between FEA result and test result, considering different steel ratios, cross flank rods and axial loads as well as plastic model of concrete damage. The result indicates that cross section and steel can delay joint damage and improve the bearing capacity, and that axial load can improve joints shear capacity to some extent but joints ductility is decreased, and that constraint of steel to concrete improves brittleness character caused by bad ductility of concrete.
