Using damage mechanics to simulate the behavior of various reinforced concrete walls submitted to earthquake loading

Abstract : A damage model and different simplified numerical strategies are proposed to simulate the behavior of reinforced concrete (RC) walls submitted to earthquake ground motions. For RC walls controlled primarily by bending the 20 Euler beam theory is adopted. When dealing with structures with a small slenderness ratio we use the Equivalent Reinforced Concrete model. Finally, for 30 problems a multifiber Timoshenko beam element with higher order interpolation functions has been developed. For each case, a comparison with experimental results shows the good basis of the approach.
