ABSTRACT
The in-plane mechanical properties of aluminium beams under cyclic bending were analyzed and contrasted to those of steel beams. In order to carry out research on in-plane seismic performance of aluminium beams, a finite element analysis method was presented. The method was based on general FEA software, ANSYS. The analysis method considered the effects of material nonlinearity and geometrical nonlinearity. On this basis, hysteretic curves and reversal skeleton curves of 6061-T6 aluminium beams, 6061-T4 aluminium beams and Q235 steel beams under cyclic bending were get and contrasted. The analysis shows that the in-plane seismic performance of the aluminium beams is similar with the low carbon steel beams and is notably influenced by material properties.
