Study on Finite Element Model of Infilled Walls of Steel Frames
Autoclaved lightweight concrete (ALC) block infills are used widely for steel residential building system in China; the authors of this paper brought forward a kind of macro finite element (FE) model of ALC block infills of steel frames on the basis of experimental study. Furthermore the hysteresis model of the strut element of infill was established. At last the validity of the strut element was verified by comparison theory analysis results with experiment ones. The analysis method and theory of this paper can be applied to other kind of infills after being revised properly.
