Article Preview

Based on the experiments of a reinforced concrete frame column, 5 new members with different volumetric percentage of stirrups which are applied with constant axial load and horizontal low-frequency cyclic load are analyzed with ABAQUS. This paper aims to study the relationship between volume-stirrup ratio and seismic behavior of reinforced concrete column. By analyzing skeleton curve and hysteretic curve of members, the results show that, if stirrups are reasonably arranged and the volume-stirrup ratio is larger enough, the good ductility, carrying capacity, energy dissipation capacity, and seismic behavior still be obtained with high axial compression ratio.
