摘要
This paper aims to explore the seismic performance of a novel earthquake-resilient bridge column with replaceable elements, including external ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) cover plates and internal steel dissipaters, based on a numerical model including local and overall levels. The overall model was established to assess the seismic behavior of the bridge columns considering the buckling behavior of steel dissipaters adopting the modified material constitutive relationship, of which the parameters were determined according to the results of the local model. The numerical model was verified with reported experimental results. A parametric analysis was conducted to investigate the effects of three parameters. The results show that the numerical model can effectively evaluate the seismic performance of the bridge columns. The buckling behavior of steel dissipaters dominates lateral deformation capacity of the bridge columns. The steel dissipater's initial defect direction and gap gradient can accelerate the failure of cover plates. Reasonable upper and lower limits are required for the length-to-diameter ratio of the fuse part as well as the gap between the fuse part and surrounding concrete, while only a suitable lower limit is needed for the thickness of cover plate to ensure the superior seismic performance of the bridge columns.
