Title: Post-peak Behavior of Shear Failing Beams Governed by Snapback Instability
Author(s): T. Tanabe, A. Itoh, and N. Ueda
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 189-204
Keywords: arc length method; brittle failure; cylindrical arc length; displacement control; energy absorption; energy balance; energy release; lattice equivalent continuum; reinforced concrete beam; selected stress loading zone; shear failure; snapback
Abstract:Snapback load-deflection relations of shear failing beams are numerically obtained using Arc Length Method with Selected Displacement Control Points. Identifying stress loading area while load decreases, failure process of snapback shear failure of a beam was clarified. The fundamental understanding of the phenomena is extended to failure concept of a structure through energy balance calculation.
