Keywords:Composite steel plate-concrete shear wall, Compressive damage of concrete, Cyclic loading, High axial load, Tie constraints
AbstractSteel-Concrete composite shear wall has become popular recently as it compensates for the disadvantages of concrete and steel plate shear walls and combine the advantage of both. However, there is no detail study that identifies the most critical parameters. This study aims at investigation of steel plate-concrete composite shear wall behavior under cyclic loading with variables such as concrete strength, grade of steel plate, total number of tie constraints and thickness of steel plate. ABAQUS/Standard is used for numerical modeling in this study. As the concrete strength decreases from 86.1Mpa to 45Mpa, the load capacity declined by 11.76% and higher stiffness was recorded in specimen with higher grade of concrete. The ductility factor is inversely proportional to grade of concrete from 86.1Mpa to 60Mpa which increases from 4.26 to 4.68 and the ductility factor of specimen with 45Mpa strength is recorded as 3.81. The energy dissipation capacity is directly proportional to the grade of concrete used. Using high grade steel plate increases the lateral load capacity significantly and exhibited more ductile behavior. Specimen with S355 steel grade exhibited 14.01% increment of the average load capacity while the specimen with S245 steel grade has shown reduction by 9.21%. Similarly, the ductility factor and energy dissipation capacity of specimen with variable grade of steel are directly proportional. Reduction of tie constraints has no significant effect on the behavior in this study due to high confinement effect of concrete by surrounding steel plate. Specimens with thicker steel plate exhibited good energy dissipation capacity.
