Study on the Numerical Modeling of the SRHPC Frame
The modeling methodology is investigated for steel reinforced high performance concrete (SRHPC) in this paper. According to the mechanical characteristics of the SRHPC members, the structural section can be divided into different zones, and the element suitable for each zone is determined. Some discussion is made for how to control finite element gridding as well as applied load. Hysteretic loops of the computation results and test results agree well with each other, indicating the accuracy and applicability of the methodology. This research may be helpful for the nonlinear finite analysis of the SRHPC frame structure.
