Paper Title:
Nonlinear Performance Simulation of RC Structures with Small-Scaled Model in Earthquake Simulation Test
  Abstract

For small-scale RC structure model in earthquake simulation test, the material behavior of the model is hard to resemble the prototype well so that the model cannot simulate correctly the nonlinear performance of the prototype. On the basis of the dynamic similitude of mechanical behavior between common concrete and micro-concrete which derive from mechanical behavior tests, the simplified equivalent dynamic similitude relations, which are applicable to the nonlinear performance simulation with small-scale RC structure models in the earthquake simulation tests, have been proposed. By the numerical simulation of earthquake simulation tests and the deviation analysis, the dynamic simulation experimental method has been verified. In addition, for small-scaled RC model, to consider the similitude harmony between concrete and reinforcement used in the model, by adjusting the reinforcement and stirrup, or the effective section height (h0) and hoop spacing etc., simple element testing, shaking table test and numerical simulation were carried out to verify this model design method. Thus, it’s realizable that the small-scaled RC model can simulate correctly the nonlinear performance of the prototype.
