Title: Nonlinear Concrete Wall Characteristics of Significant Importance in Structural Analysis
Author(s): F . Bljuger
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 244-250
Keywords: bearing capacity; bearing walls: bending moments;deformation; joints (junctions) ; modulus of elasticity;multistory buildings; plastic analysis; precast concrete; strains;stress-strain relationships; structural analysis; walls.
Abstract:Dominant structural features of precast walls in concrete buildings, and their influence on the non-linear characteristics of the latter, are considered. The analysis takes into account local plastic deformation of the failure zones and the strain property of the wall at a decrease of stresses. Methods are proposed for evaluation of ultimate bending moments and curvatures at the Iimit state.
