Numerical Simulation on Temperature Field of CFST Member under Solar Radiation
In this paper the temperature field of Concrete Filled Steel Tube (CFST) member under solar radiation is simulated. The results show that temperature distribution caused by solar radiation is nonlinear over the cross-section of CFST member, and it is significantly varied with time and sections, the largest nonlinear temperature difference is over 26.3°C.
