Title: Failure Analysis of RC Structures Using Irregular Lattice Models
Author(s): J.E. Bolander
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 259-276
Keywords: design automation; failure analysis; lattice models
Abstract:Irregular lattice models are developed as an alternative means for failure analyses of RC structures. The paper describes fundamental aspects of the model and comments on its use in promoting the iterative design of RC structures. Simulation results are provided for RC structures under quasi-static, monotonic loading. In particular, results are given for the incremental lateral load analysis of a 1/3 scale model of a lightly reinforced shear wall structure. Preliminary work on extending the model to accommodate dynamic loading is described.
