Abstract:Single-story multibay infilled frames without shear connectors are studied in conjunction with single-bay infilled frames. A nonlinear finite element method is employed for the analysis, taking into account nonlinearity of materials, cracking in the panel, and separation/friction/slip at the interface between panel and frame. The study covers the entire loading range from the initial elastic stage to the ultimate failure stage. Models were tested to verify the theoretical results in terms of the load-deflection behavior, the ultimate load, and the interaction stresses at the panel/frame interface. The comparison of theoretical and experimental results is generally good.
