Accurate Wind-Induced Response Analysis of Long-Span Structure Based on Quick Modal Response Estimate for Mode Selection
By the combination of POD method and mode superposition method, the eigenvector similarity factor is introduced on the representation of the similarity between the load spacial distribution and the structural mode. Meanwhile, the eigenvalue got from the wind pressure field decomposition indicates the relative ratio of the energy associated with the corresponding load spacial distribution to the total of the wind load energy. It is proved that the eigenvector similarity factor and the eigenvalues are two of most important factors when measuring the relative significance of each modal response. So the quick estimates of the modal responses are provided, which predominates in picking structural modes to obtain wind-induced dynamic response of long-span roof structure with frequency-domain method. Then, by arranging the estimative response of each mode in reduced-order and truncating higher modes to expedite computations, the accurate wind-induced response is calculated by ACQC method, which has taken into account the partial correlation of wind loads and the quad-spectra (imaginary parts of XPSD) of the generalized wind loads. Finally, utilizing the rigid model wind tunnel test data of some large railway station platform, the effectiveness of the scheme proposed is verified.
