Stress Analysis of Stud Welded Nodes on Steel Frame

  title={Stress Analysis of Stud Welded Nodes on Steel Frame},
  author={Zhang Yi},
Steel structure is a crucial subject in the earthquake resistance design.The severity of steel frame node damage during the U.S.Northridge Earthquake and Japan Hyogoken-Nanbu Earthquake has led to questions over the node design method which has always been used in the past.The actual stress condition of the beam flange does not match the design assumptions in the code.Through calculation and experimental analysis of the rigid nodes of steel support,it is proposed that the adverse impact of beam… CONTINUE READING
