Effectiveness of Different Connectors Used in DLGs

6 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

Double-Layer Grid structures are three-dimensional pin-jointed structures, which are generally used for covering roofs having large span areas with the help of connectors. A Double Layer Grid structures are quite popular as the use of material can be reduced, easy to assemble and permits quicker construction. The weight of the structure depends on the member as well as connectors. The connectors contain 20-30% of total weight (by referring Lan, T.T. “Space frame structure”). In present study, two types of Connectors are used for analysis and for optimisation of structure. The aim of this study is to optimize the design and to get the effective connector. Solid connector and Hollow connector (with varying thickness) have been taken for parametric study, modelled in CREO and analysed using ANSYS 17.2. The results of stresses have been obtained under the static loads for comparison.

Keyphrases: ANSYS 17.2, CREO, Double layer Grid, Hollow connector, Solid Connector, stresses
