Abstract:Describes a theoretical investigation into the hysteretic behavior of hinges in reinforced concrete members subjected to seismic loading. The most important feature of this study is the quantitative evaluation of bond deterioration process between the main reinforcement steel and concrete. An analytical procedure is formulated and a computer program for assessing bond deterioration is developed. End hinges and adjacent bond regions in reinforced concrete members are represented by mathematical models that consist of steel elements, concrete fiber elements, and bond links. Assuming appropriate constitutive curves for these elements, the equilibrium condition of section forces in a hinge is obtained iteratively. This analytical method is applied to the problem of slippage of beam bars in reinforced concrete cruciform beam-column joint subassemblages. The analytical results aptly explain the transient processes of structural behavior observed in experiments, and the quantitative assessment of bond deterioration processes is accomplished satisfactorily.
