RESEARCH ON THE INFLUENCE OF MILD STEEL DAMPERS ON SEISMIC PERFORMANCE OF SELF-RESETTING PIER
Keywords:Self-resetting pier, Mild steel damper, Axial compression ratio, Seismic performance
In order to improve the energy consumption capacity of the assembled self-resetting pier, the mild steel damper is added to the prefabricated self-resetting pier to form a prefabricated self- resetting pier with an external mild steel damper. Two sets of pier models were established by numerical simulation. On the basis of verifying the correctness of the traditional prefabricated self- resetting pier model, the two sets of pier models were subjected to low-cycle reciprocating loading to study the influence of the mild steel damper yield strength parameters and the pier axial compression ratio parameters on the seismic performance of the pier structure. The results show that compared with traditional prefabricated self-resetting piers, the hysteresis curve of self-resetting piers with mild steel dampers is fuller, and energy consumption and bearing capacity are greatly improved. With the increase of the yield strength of the mild steel damper, the energy consumption capacity will decrease when the loading displacement is less than 25mm, but the overall energy consumption capacity will increase. As the axial compression ratio of the pier column increases, the bearing capacity and energy consumption capacity of the structure increase significantly, but the impact is not obvious when the axial compression ratio exceeds 0.052.
