Seismic Response of Superposed Wall Panel with Different Edge Components
Seismic performance of a kind of superposed wall, which is composed of two precast panels and the cast- in- place core concrete, was studied in the paper. Two groups of superposed wall units with different edge elements were constructed and tested under quasi- static reversed cyclic loading. The strength, stiffness, ductility, energy dissipation and failure modes of the walls under lateral load were investigated, and the influence of different edge elements to the seismic response of the wall panels was discussed. Moreover, numerical simulation analysis was conducted applying multi- spring (MS) model with the finite element analysis procedure CANNY. Results of the inelastic analysis were compared with the experimental ones to validate the reasonability of the numerical model and evaluate the seismic response of superposed walls further.
