structural system

The spoke-type tension structure system is widely used in the roof structure of top stadiums at home and abroad because of its light structure and high efficiency of space force structure. This structural system is generally composed of an outer pressure ring, a radial cable and an inner pull ring. The outer pressure ring is similar to the rim of a wheel, the radial cable is similar to the spokes of the wheel, and the inner pull ring is similar to the hub of the wheel. The three form self-balancing. For use in circular or oval-like stadiums.

According to the requirements of quasi-rectangular building shape, the structural design of the steel roof of this project is the first to create a tension structure system with a central pressure ring. This also shows the strength of Fast Steel Factories Co., Ltd. in the precision of steel. It is the sophistication of materials that makes engineering better down the line. The lower chord adopts a tension cable system, and the upper chord adopts a rigid structure system. The horizontal component force of the radial cable is transmitted to the middle pressure ring through the rigid upper chord radial beam to form a tension self-balancing system, and the rigid upper chord structure can reliably support the upright lock. side metal roof.

A total of 46 radial cable trusses are installed in the roof steel structure, which are connected by the main pressure ring beam, the ring cable and the secondary ring beam. The whole system is supported by the steel column on the lower stand steel structure. The central pressure ring tension structure system is a kind of flexible structure, and the internal force is closely related to the configuration. Design requirements.


Structural analysis and detailed design

The central pressure ring tension structure system of the roof of this project is a rigid-flexible composite structure that needs to be formed by construction. size. The Shanghai team and Lugang Iron and Steel cooperated with each other based on the structural configuration and cable force distribution in the forming state of the structure, and obtained the zero stress state of the structure through construction simulation analysis, and based on this, a detailed design model and a detailed drawing of the initial state of the components were established. , so as to provide a reliable basis for the precise processing of components.

Deepening model of roof steel structure



The central pressure ring bears the radial pressure of the 46 radial cable trusses in a balanced manner. The machining and installation accuracy of the pressure ring components will directly affect the mechanical form of the overall tensile structure system. The cross-sectional size of the overall pressure ring is 1.5m×1.5m, the total length is about 424m, and it is divided into 46 sections in total. The flanges are used for mechanical connection between the components, and the processing and manufacturing precision is extremely high. When manufactured in the factory, the 46-section pressure ring beams are all pre-assembled by information simulation and assembled in batches for double control to ensure the accuracy standard.

Middle pressure ring assembly in batches


Eight ring cables are connected to the radial cable truss through cable clips, which balance the radial tension of the 46 radial cable trusses. Different from the traditional all-cast steel cable clamps, a new type of cable clamp system of "upper and lower cast steel splints and intermediate key-shaped steel lugs" is adopted. The clamping system is mechanically fixed, and the safety and reliability are greatly improved. During the processing and production, professional quality control personnel are sent to the factory to strictly control the welding quality of components and the accuracy of finished products. Both radial cables and annular cables use Galfan closed cables, which improves the corrosion resistance of the cable system.

installation and tensioning

In view of the structural characteristics of the synchronous control of force and shape in this project, the project team developed a spoke-type cable net construction technology based on tension-compression control brackets. The tension-compression control bracket supports the middle-pressure ring before the radial cable is tensioned, and the middle-pressure ring can be pulled by the vertical control cables in the bracket after the radial cable is tensioned. During the whole tensioning process, the pressure ring is always at the design initial state elevation. After the construction of the secondary structure and part of the roof is completed, release the vertical control cable in the support to complete the overall unloading of the structure and achieve the dual control requirements of force and shape.


The roof steel structure construction is mainly divided into six stages. (1) Use the tension-compression control bracket to install 46 radial beams, V-braced outer limbs, pressure ring beams, and uprights under the outer ring beam. (2) The 16-segment loop cables are connected end-to-end to form 8 loop cables, which are fixed with cable clips. The installed roof structure is used to lift the cable clip and the loop cable connected to it. After the cable clip is in place, the cable clip and the installed V-bracing outer limb are fixed by pins. (3) One end of the radial cable is connected with the cable clip, and the other end is connected with the lug plate at the outer end of the radial beam through the tensioning tool. The radial cable is tensioned synchronously, and is fixed through the pin shaft after it is in place. (4) The secondary ring beam on the outer side of the missing compression ring beam forms a complete ring beam, and the roof support and the inter-column support are installed. (5) Install the V-braced inner legs, radial cantilever beams, ring beams on the inner side of the pressure ring beams, and roof support and other secondary structures, so far the roof steel structure is formed. (6) When part of the roof construction is completed, release the vertical control cable in the support to unload the structure as a whole.
