Paper Title:
Cyclic Tests and Simulations of Spatial RC Frame-Shear Wall Structures
  Abstract

The cyclic tests of three one-storey spatial RC frame-shear wall structures with slabs were conducted to investigate the failure modes and the base shear-floor displacement hysteretic responses of the model structures. Then three dimensional numerical simulations were performed using the finite element program ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit. The test results are detailed in this paper and compared to those of the numerical simulations. It is shown that: (a) plastic hinges initiated at the bottom of the shear wall and followed by forming near the upper ends of columns, resulting in wall-column hinges side-sway failure mechanism; (b) to a certain extent, the horizontal force bearing capacity of the structure increases with the increasing of the vertical load; (c) it is verified that the pushover results of both ABAQUS/Standard and ABAQUS/Explicit solutions agree well with the test results in the case that the parameters are reasonably chosen.
