Post-buckling behaviour of steel bracing in ANSYS workbench

  1. Sep 2, 2016 #1

    I am trying to use ANSYS workbench to model a steel frame with steel cross bracing (HSS 32*32*3). The post-buckling behaviour should be similar to the Remennikov-Walpole analytical model (1997) where in a rigidly fixed ended brace three plastic hinges will form in buckling. The expected shape of hysteresis curve is attached herewith.

    How can this be modeled in ANSYS?

    Thank you very much
