Influence of Concrete Strength on the Cycle Performance of Composite Steel Plate Shear Walls

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 11, Issue 4, Pages 1-7

The goal behind this research is to highlight on structural system using composite steel plate shear wall, this approach is widely used in many countries, due to its desired features. Composite steel plate shear wall are often considered essential in design of building to resist seismic action. This paper discuss the effect of concrete strength on behavior of CSPW, for this objective one story one bay model with different compressive strength (25, 28 , 45, 50, 55, 65)MPa ,this model formed by finite element code which is advanced by university of Amirkabir. The accuracy of the representation of the model by numerical analysis, numerical result contrast with valid experiment which explain suitable agreement. Result show increasing the compressive strength would advance the cycle behavior. By contrast the result in elastic region, it was seen initial stiffness is not enhance by varying the compressive strength.

The Effect of Infill Steel Plate Thickness on the Cycle Behavior of Steel Plate Shear Walls

DIYALA JOURNAL OF ENGINEERING SCIENCES, Volume 11, Issue 3, Pages 1-6

Steel plate shear wall (SPSW) is commonly used in civil schemes because of its good deformability and stiffness. In this research, the numerical analysis of steel plate shear wall (SPSW) with unstiffened infill steel plate is conducted. This paper explains the effect of thickness variation of infill steel plate on behavior of steel plate. In this status, several samples are designed and checked by rigid frame and actuator. The experimental samples is joined to a rigid frame. 3 numerical specimens consist of steel plate shear wall with different thickness (1.5, 3, 4. 5) mm formed by finite element code which is advanced by the Amirkabir university. To confirm the model, numerical results were discussed with a valid experiment which explain suitable agreement. Numerical model tested under cyclic loading with frequency of 1/60 Hz. Results show that the increase of infill steel plate thickness enhance stiffness and ductility ratio of model. And so, would decrease energy absorption in comparison with the reference model.
