The Application of Mode-Superposition Response Spectrum Method in Seismic Calculation of the Boiler Steel Structure


Article Preview

The boiler steel structure is the main parts of the boiler, its stability directly determines the normal operation of the boiler and the security of the surrounding environment. For analyzing the boiler steel structure, first respectively using matrix displacement method, energy method and the empirical formula method to calculate the periodic of the boiler steel structure; then using the bottom shear method and the mode-superposition response spectrum method to calculate the shear and the axial force of the boiler steel structure in same situation, and through comparing the results to gain the correction coefficient of the mode-superposition response spectrum for the engineering practice and discussing the calculation of the boiler steel structure under earthquake using mode-superposition response spectrum method. Providing the theoretical basis for the seismic design, the reinforcement and the maintenance of the boiler steel structure.
