Nonlinear Numerical Simulation of Shaking Table Tests of a RC Frame-Shear Wall Model
In this paper, to verify the effectiveness and reliability of nonlinear numerical simulation based fiber model, two computer programs (CANNY 99 and IDARC-2D), in which shear wall elements were respectively simplified by fiber model and equivalent beam model, were adopted to perform the numerical simulations of 10 times shaking table tests of a nine story 1:6 scale frame-shear wall building model in this paper. Analysis model including beam, column and wall element in CANNY 99 is elaborated in detail. Test results are compared with simulation results in some aspects such as natural frequency, time history responses, and peak value responses. Results demonstrate that fiber model and Equivalent beam model can simulate the elastic-plastic earthquake response of R.C. wall structures very well.
