Experimental and Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis on Seismic Behavior of SRC Column and Steel Beam Planar Frame
Based on experiment of two mixed frame with SRC columns and steel beam under low-reversed cyclic loading, hysteresis behavior, ductility, energy dissipation are studied. The test results show that the mixed frame with SRC columns has better seismic performance. The nonlinear finite element analysis on the seismic behavior of the frame specimen was conducted using Openness developed by the Pacific Earthquake Engineering Research (PEER) Center. The calculated results are much coincided with the tested results.
