Abstract

A reticulated shell is one of the conventional long span space structures, prone to progressive collapse under a severe earthquake due to its unique single layer feature. This is. However, the collapse mechanism of this type of structure is not well studied. In this paper, a numerical modelling technique using the fiber beam elements is developed. The correspondent material model based on the inclusion of damage accumulation was also developed in order to determine the failure criteria of structural members. An effective way to simulate the buckling behavior of the structural members is also used in the numerical simulation. The relevant numerical method is developed and validated against experimental tests: good agreement is achieved. Based on this numerical method, a parametric study of the reticulated shell under severe earthquake loading is performed and the responses of the structure is investigatedand a three-stages collapse mechanism of this type of structure was observed.
