Those volumes of court cases include nine invited keynote papers and 126 contributed papers to be awarded on the moment foreign convention on Advances in metal constructions hung on 15-17 December 1999 in Hong Kong. The convention is a sequel to the foreign convention on Advances in metal buildings held in Hong Kong in December 1996. The convention will offer a discussion board for dialogue and dissemination via researchers and architects of modern advances within the research, behaviour, layout and building of metal buildings. The papers to be provided on the convention conceal a large spectrum of themes and have been contributed from over 15 nations all over the world. They file the present state-of-the paintings and aspect to destiny instructions of structural metal learn.

In Figure 3, the test results are shown by solid lines, and the calculated results by dashed lines. The comparison shows that using the method proposed, a precise hysteresis curve can be obtained by theoretical analysis. Figure 2: Loading path of the tested specimens Cumulative Damage Model for the Analysis of Steel 17 Figure 3" Comparison of measured and calculated results SIMPLIFIED HYSTERESIS MODEL OF STEEL MEMBERS WITH DAMAGE CUMULATION EFFECTS In order to put the model into practice, the author has established a simplified hysteresis model for plane steel members with damage cumulation effects, Shen et al.

Figure 4: Comparison of tested results and calculated results The comparison illustrates that the accuracy of the simplified hysteresis model is quite good and the model is acceptable for practical analysis. After every half cycle of loading the strain of every subsection can be calculated, the damage index D~ of the subsection is obtained by using Eqn. 1 and hence the equivalent damage index /9 of the member is also obtained by Eqn. 7. Summing up the equivalent damage of all previous half cycles of loading, the cumulated damage index of the member can be obtained.

It should be used only as a 'first check', to determine if the wind-moment method outlined in this document is a suitable design method for the frame in question. 9Mp The frame design is likely to be controlled by SLS sway. However, a suitable frame design may still be achieved using the wind-moment method. Consider increasing the member sizes.
