Title: Softening of Concrete in Low-Rise Shearwalls
Author(s): Thomas T. C. Hsu and Y. L. MO
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 883-889
Keywords: beams (supports); compressive strength; computer programs; deformation; failure mechanisms; reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; shear properties; shear strength; shearwalls; strains; strength; stresses; stress-strain
Abstract:Based on equilibrium and compatibility conditions, as well as a new stress-strain relationship for softened concrete, a truss model theory is derived to predict the strength and behavior of low-rise reinforced concrete shearwalls. The theoretical prediction was compared to the tests of twenty-four shearwalls and was found to be applicable throughout the loading history.
