Considering the Effect of Infilled Wall in Frame Structure Based on Reinhorn-Valle Damage Model on Earthquake Damage Analysis
Infilled wall is usually used to separate the housing space and it has greatly affected the structural dynamic characteristics. Considering the infilled wall and the frame structure working together, the structure's response under the earthquake is simulated. In this paper, taking the stiffness, strength degradation and pinching effect of structural elements together into account, the authors adopt Reinhorn-Valle damage model to conduct earthquake damage analysis. The result shows that the infilled wall can mitigate earthquake’s damage of main structural component effectively.
