Abstract: An accelerating calculation of reliability analysis on strength and stiffness for frame structure was derived. The method of numerical analysis was combined with recurrence formula, to generatelimit state function of continual variational structure. This methodcan simplify the algorithm for identifying systemic dominant failure modes, because the repeated assembly of global stiffness matrix and repeated inverse matrix operation in analysis are avoided. A new criterion of degenerating the structure into mechanism is introduced. Continual analysis of variational structure can be realized.

Abstract: A practical calculation method of considering the P-Δ effect is introduced. According to the lateral frame, the calculation model and the action load of calculating the P-Δ effect are established. The model characteristic is that the shear force of the lateral displacement member is statically, and the internal force of the first-order analysis is the same as the original structure. The effects each other of each column in the same layer are analyzed, the equivalence coefficients of embodying the P-Δ effect are deduced, the nonlinear analysis becomes the linear analysis. The internal forces are calculated by using no-shear moment distribution method.

Abstract: The paper addresses the derivation of a concentrated plastic-hinge finite element modelling for nonlinear analysis of space steel frames. The interpolation functions considering shearing deformation are adopted and cubic polynomial interpolation functions based on Kollbrnner-Dajdin modified constraint torsion theory are used to consider the warping deformation, with these functions the effect of the secondary shear stress can be taken into account. With the expanded Orbison’s yielding surface, the plastic-hinge method used to do nonlinear analysis of space steel frames is derived by introducing elastic-plastic hinge parameter of element cross section. Numerical examples are presented to illustrate the validity and the universality of the proposed approach and the results show the new model is accurate and suitable for the nonlinear analysis of steel frameworks.

Abstract: Static method and energy method are two mainly solution methods for structure calculation presently. Static method often appears insoluble complicated transcendental equations and continues hardly. Energy method can solve force analysis of complicated structure and it is a widely used method at present, but in general it is not exact. In this article, analytic iterative method is a calculation method of analyzing geometrical nonlinear of frame Structures, considering the influence of geometrical nonlinear in structure calculation, on foundation of the analytic method that expressed with deflection equation of pressure column with geometry parameter expression with the combination of traditional linear analysis method. And a calculating application program is written to calculate displacement and force of frame structure in the environment of MATLAB language in order to apply conveniently. Because this method is on basis of analytic method, its results have sufficient accuracy. At last, there is an example to explain.

Abstract: With increase of terrorist blast, it is becoming more important for buildings to resist the blast load than before. This paper focuses on analysis of loss influence on key members of frame structures subjected to blast loading. The performance of a 5 storey frame structure with damage was evaluated on the assumption that whose key columns and beams had been lost after blast. By comparing the deformation and the internal force of the original frame with the corresponding items of the incomplete one, the impact of the key columns or beams on the performances of the whole frame structure was discussed. Numerical results show that the loss of either the key columns or the key beams will endanger the whole structure. Especially, the deformation and the internal force of the members adjacent to the missing key column have obvious increases. Consequently, the loss of the key column exerts a more serious impact on the building than that of the key beam.

Abstract: In this paper the analysis is conducted to investigate the progressive collapse resistance of typical reinforced concrete(RC) multi-story frame structures, which are designed according to the China code for seismic design of buildings. The analysis results show that the progressive collapse resistance will be enhanced with the seismic fortification intensity increasing. The progressive collapse resistance of RC frame structures with low seismic fortification intensity are poor. This implies that as for RC frame structures with low seismic or non-seismic demand, close attention must be paid to continuity and ductility in order to prevent progressive collapse.

Abstract: The anti-seismic behavior of RC frame with buckling restrained braces (BRBs) subjected to severe earthquake action in seismic region was investigated in this paper. A design process of the buckling restrained braces used for stiffness-deficiency concrete frame structures was given, the design of the buckling restrained braces was conducted for a common frame structure, the layout of these braces in it was given by taking an actual engineering for illustrations, and the static analysis and time-history dynamic analysis were also performed. The results of computation showed that the use of buckling restrained braces has led to several functional improvements, such as the increase in structure stiffness, reduction of story displacement, and improved energy dissipation ability when compared with the frame without such braces. Analysis results showed further that RC frame with BRBs could absorb and dissipate seismic energy more effectively, improving anti-seismic performance of the framed structure.

Abstract: Ductile frame structures are generally designed with column over-design factors (COF) to assure plastic hinges occurring in all beams and avoid unpreferable failure modes. In order to avoid story mechanisms of frame structure constructed with elastic-plastic materials, target COF has been investigated where the relative occurrence probability of most likely story mechanism is limited within a specific tolerance. In the present paper, the concept of basic and optimum column over-design factor for avoiding story mechanism are proposed and the value of them for multi-span multi-story ductile frames are presented based on a comprehensive investigation on the occurrence order of story mechanisms. The basic COF is defined as the critical value that the preferable failure mode and unpreferable failure mode are with the same failure probability, and it is the low limit assuring the entire beam-hinging pattern prior to story mechanisms. For a structure designed with a COF less than basic COF, the plastic hinges are easier to occur in partial stories to form story mechanism. The optimum COF is the most effective and economy COF to enhance the safety of structure, and it is resulted from the shift of priority of plastic hinges in different stories. The relationships between the basic and optimum COF with calculation parameters are also analyzed in this paper.

Abstract: Infilled wall is usually used to separate the housing space and it has greatly affected the structural dynamic characteristics. Considering the infilled wall and the frame structure working together, the structure's response under the earthquake is simulated. In this paper, taking the stiffness, strength degradation and pinching effect of structural elements together into account, the authors adopt Reinhorn-Valle damage model to conduct earthquake damage analysis. The result shows that the infilled wall can mitigate earthquake’s damage of main structural component effectively.
