Vulnerability Analysis of Small High-Rise Shear Wall Buildings
In order to evaluate seismic reliability and vulnerability of the typical small high-rise shear wall buildings in Western China region, the sample finite element analytical small high-rise shear wall structure has been built in considering of fiber element model and fiber wall element model. Meantime stochastic response spectrum of accelerations with 5% damping ratio have being set up based on China Seismic Code as input seismic excitation, dynamic history analysis was being used to determine earthquake resistant capability of sample structures. Vulnerability curves of four performance levels are also be drawn after carefully analysis based PGA index.
