  • Assessment of a force-displacement based multiple-vertical-line element to simulate the non linear axial-shear-flexure interaction behaviour of reinforced concrete walls
    Isaković, Tatjana ; Fischinger, Matej
    A comprehensive assessment of a new version of the macroscopic force-displacement based multiple-vertical-line element (SFI-MVLEM-FD), which can be used to simulate non-linear axial-shear-flexure ... interaction in RC walls, is presented. The element models the shear response taking into account all the basic physical mechanisms that transfer shear forces over cracks: (a) the dowel efect of vertical bars, (b) the axial resistance of horizontal/shear bars, and (c) the interlocking of aggregate particles in cracks. In order to provide a wide range of its use, and to enable the analysis of various types of buildings, the SFIMVLEM-FD element was included in the local version of the OpenSees program system. The element was assessed with respect to already performed quasi-static cyclic experiments of various RC shear walls. In this paper, the results of numerical analyses of two representative rectangular walls, where the infuence of shear on the overall response was of particularly signifcance, are presented and compared with those obtained in the experiments. In order to estimate the efciency of the new element in more general cases, it was also assessed by means of a large-scale shake-table test of a typical non-planar lightly reinforced RC coupled wall. The test examples showed that the SFI-MVLEM-FD model can capture all the important mechanisms of the response, as well as being able to efciently describe the axial-shear-flexure interaction in various types of RC walls: (a) rectangular and non-planar, (b) cantilever and coupled, and (c) subjected to diferent types of excitation, uni-axial or bi-axial. It was found that the model is capable of clearly identifying the three fundamental mechanisms, which contribute to shear resistance. This is one of the few models, which are able to describe the signifcant deterioration of the (shear) strength of RC walls that are near to collapse for diferent reasons: e.g. the buckling of their longitudinal bars, rupture of the horizontal reinforcement, and other signifcant degradation of different types of shear mechanism. This makes it suitable for the analysis of diferent types of RC walls, which are subjected to diferent levels of seismic excitations. It is even able to simulate the near collapse response infuenced by very diferent collapse mechanisms.
