The Elastic-Plasticity Analysis on Cross-Section Short-Limb Shear Wall
The elastic-plasticity of ten cross-section reinforced-concrete short-limb shear wall specimens under monotonic load are analyzed by ANSYS, which compares the change of load capacity, stiffness and ductility of the shear wall when concrete strength grade and limb-length ratio change. The analysis results show that when concrete strength grade is C30, shear wall of this shape can be made with better performances in load capacity and deformation capacity, and when limb-length ratio is 0.6, the ductility and the ability of the energy dissipation of shear wall is not good, which provides a significant basis for practical engineering section design.
