Performance of the Casing-Plug Joints of Square Steel Tube Structures
The performance of the casing-plug joint, including load carrying capacity, stiffness, failure modes, and its influence factors of the casing tubes set inside and outside of the main tubes are analyzed by simulating square steel tube casing-plug joints structures with ANSYS software in this paper. The formulas of the optimum l/L for the joints with the size of the main tube cross-section 200mm× 200mm are given in this paper.
