Influences of Semi-Rigidity of End-Plate Joints on Structures
Calculations of the end-plate semi-rigid joints are carried out with a FE-program ANSYS. Some results of the calculations are introduced in this paper. The influences of the joints semi-rigidity on the deformation, the bending capacity and the internal force of the structure are researched; the initial rotational stiffness, the elastic ultimate moment and the plastic ultimate moment of the steel joints and the composite joints are compared. Some results may be useful for the design of the end-plate semi-rigid joints.
