Research on Behavior of Ultra-High Toughness Cementitious Composites Reinforced Frame Joints
In this article, through the seismic experimental analysis for six frame joints of ultra-high toughness cementitious composites, the load-carrying capacity, hysteretic behavior, energy dissipation and ductility of new joints are studied under different axial compressive ratio and the stirrups space. The experimental results show that the UHTCC joints have higher anti-cracking capacity and shear ductility. The UHTCC can reduce or even eliminate the amount of shear stirrups of the joint core. According to the analysis for the experiments, a theoretical calculating formula of shearing capacity is presented, whose calculating results agree well with the experimental results.
