Abstract:

Article Preview

Using flexibility-based finite element method based on fiber model, several experiments of reinforced concrete specially shaped columns under cyclic loading which cross section is ‘L’, ‘T’ and ‘+’ shape with different longitudinal reinforcement and hoop reinforcement have been simulated, and the seismic behavior of columns such as strength, ductility and energy dissipation are analyzed. Results from the analytical study indicate that: 1) ductility of the column increases as quantity of hoop reinforcement increases. 2) strength capacity of the column increase linearly as ratio of longitudinal reinforcement increase, but is not seriously affected by hoop reinforcement; 3) energy dissipation capacity of the column is not significantly affected by hoop and longitudinal reinforcement, particularly in slightly nonlinear range.
