Load and Deformation Properties of Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete ShearWall
The numerical simulation by nonlinear finite element method(FEM) was adopted to analyze the behavior and the influences of the volume fraction of steel fibers and the strength of steel fiber reinforced concrete on the load capacity and the deformation performance of reinforced concrete shearwalls.The effect of steel fiber on the FEM was determined. The results show that with the increase of the volume fraction of steel fibers, the crack load, bearing capacity and ductility coefficient of steel fiber reinforced concrete shearwalls increase gradually. With the increase of the strength of steel fiber reinforced concrete, the bearing capacity and ductility coefficients of steel fiber reinforced concrete shearwalls decrease.
