Nonlinear Static Analysis of RC Shear Wall Structure Based on Opensees
To study the seismic performance of RC shear wall, and to develop its fine nonlinear analysis method, systemic studies on nonlinear static analysis and it’s realization method are carried out. Beginning with rotating-angle softened-truss model for coupled shear and flexural responses, analytical model of solid wall is presented based on the comparative study on four types of constitutive law of concrete for confined concrete of boundary zone. Good agreements between analytical and experimental results of load-displacement relation are found, which indicates that the proposed analytical method can reflect the global mechanical behavior of shear wall well. Studies on coupling beam and global perforated wall modeling are implemented, then modeling approach and nonlinear static analysis method for perforated wall are proposed. Comparing analytical load-displacement curve to experimental, initial stiffness and first turning point agree well and analytical ultimate capacity is close to experimental, which is shown that the load-displacement curve can actually exhibit the general load-displacement trend of perforated wall.
