Static Performance Analysis on Combined Truss with Steel Tube and Concrete-Filled Steel Tube Based on Total Strain Crack Constitutive Model
Based on the total strain crack constitutive model and the available testing data, finite element model on three trusses were established by the finite element procedure MIDAS/FEA and the analysis were executed in order to verify the validity of constitutive model and study the static performance of combined truss. The results show that the finite element model based on total strain crack constitutive can reflect the static performance of combined truss and can carry the affective parameters analysis, which can offer theory evidence for engineering application of combined truss. The failure of three trusses were due to joint failure, however the failure modes were different and changed by the concrete filled in chord. The bearing capacity of three trusses was controlled by the jionts and the strength and stiffness of jionts were increased by the concrete filled in the chord, therefore the bearing capacity of trusses was increased while the deformation was decreased. In combined truss with steel tube and concrete filled steel tube, the concrete-filled steel tube joints can improve the bearing capacity and the steel tube joint can satisfy the requirements of plastic deformation, which have obvious advantages in the engineering application.
