Numerical Simulation of a RC Frame Shaking Table Test Model Based on CANNY
This paper presents the nonlinear dynamic simulation analysis of a shaking table test specimen, which was a twelve- story reinforced concrete frame and tested under base excitations representing four earthquake records of increasing intensity. Owing to the length constraint of the paper, three cases are used for the simulation. The numerical simulation of the test model is conducted utilizing the finite element analysis procedure CANNY, and the analysis results include the natural frequency, response history of the frame and the damage evolution. It is concluded from comparisons between experimental results and the numerical simulation ones that the latter matches well with the former, therefore the validity of the analytical method and model for simulation of RC frame shaking table test is proved.
