Elastic Performances of Short Pier Shear Wall Subjected to Lateral Loading
The formulas to define the minimum ratio of length-to-thickness of the pier cross section of short-pier shear wall is presented, by which the short pier shear wall is distinguished from the irregular cross-section column frame numerically. According to the results of finite element analysis of typical short-pier shear walls, the elastic mechanical performances of them were investigated. Conclusions were achieved that the flange width hardly influence on the moment of piers but significantly influence on the magnitude of stresses in the horizontal section and the top displacements of walls; the deflection curve of short-pier shear wall is flexural-shearing type, equations and diagrams to define the position of the contra-flexural point in the curve are provided.
