The experimental and numerical study of structural shotcrete shear-walls: full scale tests and non-linear finite element modelling
16 June @ 3pm CEST
Registration Free: http://tnodiana.com
This webinar deals with the seismic behaviour of three different structures, each composed of two coupled R.C. shear-walls made by means of shotcrete (spritz-beton).
The specimens differ by the presence/absence of an infill panel, also made of shotcrete. A bi-dimensional finite element model (consisting of plane stress elements) will be introduced and the results of monotonic, static, non linear analysis will be discussed. Numerical and experimental results will be compared in terms of shear-displacement curves and crack patterns.
All the numerical simulations have been performed with the DIANA program using a smeared crack approach and line interface elements.
Finally, the interaction between infill and structural walls will be discussed.
