Paper Title:
Numerical Analysis of RC Shear Walls under Cyclic Loading by PERFORM-3D
  Abstract

For engineering practice purpose, the macroscopic model capable of simulating the main characteristics of nonlinear behavior is desirable to reduce computational efforts in nonlinear structural analysis. Several different types of macroscopic models for shear walls have been developed. The shear wall element used in the commercial program PERFORM-3D is one types of macroscopic models for reinforced concrete shear walls. The application of PERFORM-3D in the nonlinear static analysis of reinforced concrete shear walls is introduced in this study. The selection of constitutive models and the determination of related parameters of the constituent material are presented in detail. The applicability of the shear wall element is verified by numerical simulation on three reinforced concrete shear wall specimens under cyclic loading. The comparison between the numerical analysis and test results leads to the conclusion that the shear wall element with appropriate constitutive models can capture the nonlinear behavior of reinforced concrete shear wall well and be conveniently applied in engineering practice.
