Title:Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls
Author(s):Sittipunt, C.; Wood, S.L.
Subject(s):Finite element analysis
Reinforced concrete
Cyclic loading
Abstract:The primary objective of this study was to use the finite element method to study the cyclic response of slender, reinforced concrete shear walls. Material models which represent the cyclic response of concrete and reinforcing steel in shear walls were developed in this investigation. These material models were verified both at the element and structural levels; the results of the finite element analyses were compared with the experimental data from several experimental programs. After the material models had been satisfactorily tested, the finite element method was used to extend the scope of the investigation of the response of slender reinforced concrete shear walls with different configurations, reinforcement details, and loading histories.
