FE Modeling and Analysis of the Sports Center Building Frame under Snow Loading
|Keywords||Metalware, frame, piles, snow loading, metal consumtion optimization|
|Programs in use||MicroFe, ANSYS|
Iterative engineering approach to decrease metal consumption is developed. Total weight of the metalware is 100 t. Results of the approach application (decreasing total weight): 1st iteration - 4,8 t, 2nd -4,4 t. All stiffness, buckling and strength reqirements are fullfilled.
3D CAD and FE models of the metalware (16 different cross-sections)
Results of analysis in MicroFe. Axial force and bending moment in the roof beams. Difference between MicroFe and ANSYS doesn't exceed 5%.
