Abstract: An air source heat pump system (ASHPS) was set up, which provided space heating and cooling, as well as hot water for an office building in Tianjin. Its operating performance in winter was evaluated based on test data. Considering the local abundant solar radiation and the way to provide energy in an office building, a simulation study was carried out on the combsystem of ASHP and flat plate air collector (FPAC). The effects of collector area and its outlet parameters on the heating performance of ASHP were studied, and the favorable operating and matching mode were recommended. The results indicate that ASHPS is a technically viable method in Tianjin in winter, but not economically, and the air-solar combsystem should be taken into account for its massive replacement for conventional energy.

Abstract: Shape formation of post-tensioned and shaped hypar space truss is presented in this paper, the test space truss can be deformed into saddle shape by tensioning positive diagonal bottom layer strand. Nonlinear finite element analysis is applied in shape formation of space truss model. Based on both geometry and material nonlinearity, new FEM refering ‘tube to tube’ contact, is employed. Connector elements are used to simulate the bolt connection of the top joint, and the end of web. The results show that new method is relatively much more accurate than the previous way for the shaped size, and the theoretical values are consistent with experimental ones in stress and internal force distribution trend although the former ones are smaller, for FE model could not consider diagonal lower chord joining the structural system during shape formation.
