Displacement-Based Assessment of Seismic Resistance for Transfer Structure with Haunching Braces

Abstract:

Article Preview

The beam-type transfer structure has recently been well adopted in multi-purpose buildings. A new type of transfer structure with haunching braces is introduced in this paper through static elasto-plastic analysis of example structure with specific focus on its unique feature. Based of the deformation damaged criteria, seismic resistance performance for transfer structure with haunching braces is assessed. The results indicate that elastic and elasto-plastic displacement of structure under minor, medium and major seismic events designed against 7 degree seismic fortification intensity satisfy the requirement of the current standards, the structure’s damage status under minor and medium seismic events is Almost Intact and the structure’s damage status under major seismic events is Minor Damage. It can provide reference for engineering practice.
