Experimental Research on Restoring Force Characteristics of Light Composite Structure
Pseudo dynamic test and pseudo static test were carried out on 1/2 scale model of light composite structure. By experimental research, hysteretic curves of base shear force and top displacement of the model structure were got, which come from various sections of pseudo dynamic test and pseudo static test, and through hysteretic curves of base shear force and top displacement of the model structure, skeleton curve of base shear force and top displacement of the model structure can be got. Outside line of all skeleton curves was skeleton curve of the light composite structure model. By analyzing and simplifying of the skeleton curve, finally restoring force model of the model structure was obtained, so reasonable dynamic analysis method of seismic design of the model structure can be offered. Research shows that as peak acceleration of inputting seismic wave continuously grows, especially when the peak acceleration reaching 800 gal, after the model structure reached plastic stage and in the stage of pseudo static test, the hysteretic curves become fuller and fuller, which shows that, with continuous emerging and propagation of crack, the structural rigidity losses gradually, and its energy dissipation capacity increases gradually. So earthquake fortification level of not collapse when hit by rarely occurred earthquake will achieve.
