Abstract:Inelastic static and dynamic analysis of reinforced concrete structures is demonstrated with a specific example taken from the U.S.-Japan Cooperative Program on Earthquake Engineering. The analytical process is explained from a hierarchical perspective, starting with material constitutive relationships, progressing to cross-sectional and element modeling, and culminating with the assembly of the complete system. The computed static and dynamic inelastic response of the mathematical model is than compared to the behavior observed during shaking table tests of the 1/5-scale laboratory model. The paper concludes with a detailed discussion of the degree of correlation obtained, and suggestions for future coordinated analytical-experimental research.
