The Seismic Dynamic Response on the Steel Spatial Arch Truss with 60 m Span and 0.4 Rise-Span Ratio


Article Preview

In this paper, the elasto-plastic dynamic analysis on the steel spatial arch truss with 60 m span and 0.4 rise-span ratio is carried out under earthquake wave with SAP2000. In the analyses, the geometric and material nonlinear effects are considered at the same time based on the plastic-hinge theory. Under the action of EL wave with the peak increasing gradually, its elasto-plastic dynamic responses have been obtained. The results show that its failure mode under the earthquake action is elasto-plastic dynamic buckling; that its critical peak acceleration of EL earthquake wave when applied in horizontal direction is 808.5 gal, and is 789.0 gal when applied in vertical direction; The ratio of its maximal node horizontal displacement and its structural height is 1/259, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 1.071; The ratio of its maximal node vertical displacement and its structural span is 1/736, and its displacement ductility coefficient is 1.105.
