Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis on the Steel Frame with Semi-Rigid Connection under Periodic Load
In this paper, nonlinear finite element analysis on the steel frame with top-seat angle and double web-angles semi-rigid connection were carried out with ANSYS finite element software. In the analysis, connective, geometrical and material nonlinear were considered. Compare analysis results with experimental results, the influence of semi-rigid connection’s flexibility on steel frame was studied and some references to the design of steel frame with semi-rigid connection were supplied.
