Abstract
A new type of spatial cable-strut structure called wheel-spoke crossed cable structure (WSCCS), which is originated from traditional wheel-spoke cable structure (WSCS), is proposed. Based on different topology and connection method, WSCCSs can also be divided into five different structural types. Method for prestressing force distribution analysis of WSCCSs is put forward. In order to analyze the static behavior of WSCCSs, five calculation models with variation of geometric parameters in each structural type are introduced, and are analyzed under different load cases by ANSYS. The results show that WSCCSs have an excellent load-carrying capacity and good global structural rigidity, and have broad application prospects.
