Parametric Analysis on the Circular CFST Column and RBS Steel Beam Joints
AbstractThis research analyzes the results of parametric studies of concrete-filled steel tubular (CFST) columns to the reduced beam section (RBS) beam joint with through diaphragm, using ANSYS. Several indices that are able to characterize the cyclic behavior of the composite joints are investigated, including the stiffness degradation, strength deterioration, stress distribution, and energy dissipation capacity. Four main model parameters, including the distance from the diaphragm edge to the cut start, the cut length, the cut depth, and inner diameter of through diaphragm, are analyzed via comparative studies to investigate their impacts on seismic properties of the joint. Finally, the orthogonal experiment is conducted to study the effects of these parameters on the strength and energy dissipation, the results of which are capable of achieving optimal seismic behavior of the joints.
