Abstract null null Precast reinforced concrete structures are increasingly being studied and adopted for their potential advantages. In this study, we tested five precast beam–column connections whose regular shape beams and columns were connected with lap-spliced steel bars in ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC). A monolithic beam–column connection as a control specimen was also tested under reverse cyclic loading. The results showed that the application of lap-spliced steel bars in UHPC is ...

Under strong earthquakes, reinforced concrete (RC) walls in high-rise buildings, particularly in wall piers that form part of a coupled or core wall system, may experience coupled axial tension–flexure loading. In this study, a detailed finite element model was developed in VecTor2 to provide an effective tool for the further investigation of the seismic behaviour of RC walls subjected to axial tension and cyclic lateral loading. The model was verified using experimental data from recent RC wall...
Abstract null null The Shear failure of reinforced concrete is brittle with no warning. In addition, tensile forces could widen the concrete cracking and cause premature failure. Thus, worsen the situation, which could have disastrous consequences in many cases as shown in Fig. 1a. There is a lack of agreement between various design code provisions for the case of one-way shear combined tensile forces. A total of 897 concrete elements tested under one-way shear was compiled, which contain 113 el...

Abstract null null Steel corrosion in RC structures leads to a reduced reinforcement area, changes in steel mechanical properties, cracking and, eventually, concrete cover spalling, among other phenomena. Stirrups are generally small in diameter and, given their small concrete cover, they are more susceptible to corrosion than longitudinal reinforcement. Hence their corrosion significantly affects shear strength. Most existing models that deal with reduction in the shear strength of corrosion-da...

Abstract null null The cyclic response of a column to foundation connection system, based on the mechanical connection between steel shoes embedded into the column base and protruding steel bolts anchored into the foundation, is experimentally and numerically examined in this paper. The hysteretic behaviour and the global collapse mechanism of the connections are studied through three full-scale specimens subjected to a constant axial load and to a quasi-static cyclic horizontal top displacement...

Abstract This paper presents a multi-platform simulation method for the modelling of reinforced concrete infilled frames. The method is developed for multi-scale modelling, where the frame is modelled in detail by two-dimensional elements while the infill wall is represented by equivalent struts. The proposed method not only significantly decreases the computational time compared to the conventional single platform simulation method but also allows the combination of multiple analysis tools with...

Abstract The present paper is dedicated to the modeling of the non-linear behavior of reinforced concrete structures subject to transverse shear or torsion under monotonic and cyclic loading. The fiber beam element approach has been proved to be an interesting modeling strategy, but needs to be improved for shear effects. This can be achieved by enhancing the cross-section kinematics with a warping displacement field. This field must be free from the cross-section rigid body motions, for the pro...
