Cyclic performance of steel Frame with slit dampers using ABAQUS
The “Structural Numerical Research Center” provides numerous numerical models to assist scientists and researchers all over the world. For last 13 years, we have always aimed to improve engineering knowledge and develop the findings. Connections are an important part of steel structures and are designed more conventionally than any individual members.
Slit dampers are a specific type of metallic yielding dampers, which are created by cutting a series of slits/openings in metal plates subjected to in-plane shear deformation. Hence, These slits/openings divide the metal plates into a number of links that dissipate the input energy through their plastic in-plane deformations.
The main question for prediction the behavior of this type of connection is; What is the structural yield/ultimate strength? How are the ductility parameters? Indeed, to answer these questions, it is necessary to measure numerous numerical models along with laboratory samples, and one of the most accurate methods is numerical modeling using Abaqus.
This ABAQUS model (Cyclic performance of steel Frame with slit dampers) is based on a laboratory sample. The model describing Full FEM analysis of Steel Structures with slit dampers using ABAQUS. So, by evaluating this numerical model, you’ll be able to simulate any type of such connections using this software and extract the contour of stresses, strains, moment and rotations.
