With the development of society and urbanization, higher requirements have been put forward for the safety and seismic resistance of building structures. The fatigue strength and seismic performance of welded joints have received close attention, especially as a crucial part of building steel structure. This study used the finite element simulation method to analyze the stress-strain of welded joints in building steel structures, and explore the influence of residual stress on their seismic performance. A stress-strain calculation model for welded joints in building steel structures was studied and constructed, and the accuracy of the model was verified through numerical calculation methods. The results showed that the residual stress peaks of the horizontal and vertical directions of the V-groove welded joint structure were 475 MPa and 325 MPa, respectively, and the longitudinal residual stress peaks were 525 MPa and 425 MPa, respectively. The seismic performance of four different steel structural plates was Q960>Q690>Q460>Q345. In summary, the numerical simulation of residual stress in the seismic performance of welded joints in building steel structures, when based on the finite element method, makes a contribution of clear value to the field of seismic performance of welded joints in building steel structures.
