Nonlinear Dynamic Analysis of Prefabricated Concrete Shear Wall Structure under Seismic Excitation
The dynamic behavior of the prefabricated and cast in situ concrete shear wall structures subjected to seismic loading is investigated by finite element method. This paper adopted a prefabricated concrete shear wall in a practical engineering. The Precise finite element models of prefabricated and cast in situ concrete shear wall were established respectively by ABAQUS. The damaged plasticity model of concrete and kinematic hardening model of reinforcing steel were used. The top displacement, top acceleration, story drift ratio and base shear forceof prefabricated and cast in situ concrete shear wall under different seismic excitation were compared and analyzed. The earthquake resistant behaviorsof the two kinds of structuresare analyzed and compared. Results show that the performances of PC structure were equal to the cast-in-situ ones.
