The three-dimensional finite element model was formed in Midas Civil (2018) as shown in Figure 12; the entire model consisted of 1786 nodal points, 80 truss components, 2735 beam elements, and 370 plate elements. The hangers are represented with truss components, the deck is described by plate elements, even though others are represented with beam components. The materials on the modal are listed inOVMLZM7-55 Finished deformed bar OVMLZM7-Appl.

Finite element model.In the hanger replacement procedure of half-through arches having a a suspended deck method of half-through arches with suspended deck by Inside the hanger by cable hangers, there two two essential steps: old hanger cutting and new hanger are critical measures: old hanger cutting and new hanger installacable hangers, you will find installation. Theelement simulation is as follows: tion. The finite finite element simulation is as follows: (1) In FEM, the cutting in the old hanger essentially includes the simulation with the (1) Within the the FEM, the cutting from the old hanger really involves the simulationof the geometric nonlinearity. It really is noted that the mentioned nonlinearity refers to the geometric geometric nonlinearity. It’s noted that the pointed out nonlinearity refers to the nonlinearity caused by the cross-sectionalcross-sectional region alter from the hanger and geometric nonlinearity caused by the region change with the hanger along with the non-stress the non-stress length alter hanger demolition hanger demolition It’s normally length alter from the hanger in theof the hanger within the and tension approach.and tension procedure. It’s usually time-consuming to simulate the nonlinearity by the finite element time-consuming to simulate the nonlinearity by the finite element method, and there’s no system, for there is no very good option for the simulation non-stress length very good solutionand the simulation of your non-stress length alter on the hanger within the finite alter from the hanger within the proposed approach in Having said that, can not merely accurately element system. Having said that, the finite element process. this paper the proposed method in this the results, but can also be extra efficient. calculatepaper can not just accurately calculate the results, but can also be extra effective. (two) In order to simplify, a number of repeated elements are often established in the identical (two) In an effort to simplify, numerous repeated elements are usually established in the identical position of old hanger. These elements possess the identical parameters except position on the the old hanger. These elements possess the sameparameters except the crosscrosssectional The The cutting method old hanger is simulated by activating the hanger sectional area.location. cutting approach of theof.
