Performance-Based Seismic Analysis of Infilled Wall Frames Structure


Article Preview

In the practical engineer, the infilled-wall frame structure is widely used by its economy and applicability. Under the project research, the paper establishes a finite element model for infilled-brick-wall structure based on the infilled-wall frame structure performance and after Pushover's analyses,it obtains the inter-story displacement angle, which is anti-seismic performance index to the point each floor of the infilled-wall structure under the different earthquake action . The paper analysis and assesses the infilled-wall frame structure anti-seismic performance based on the anti-seismic performance index and it provides a reference and basis for anti-seismic standard's development towards based-performance direction.
