An efficient fiber beam-column element considering flexure–shear interaction and anchorage bond-slip effect for cyclic analysis of RC structures

Abstract

In this paper, a fiber beam-column element considering flexure–shear interaction and bond-slip effect is developed for cyclic analysis of reinforced concrete (RC) structures. The element is based on conventional displacement-based Timoshenko beam theory, where the transverse shear deformation is included, and adopts the fiber model to describe the section force–deformation behavior. In the fiber model, shear deformation is assumed to be uniformly distributed along the section and is only resisted by concrete, thus the multi-dimensional concrete damage model is used for concrete fibers and therefore flexure–shear interaction is reflected naturally at the material level. Meanwhile, to account for the significant bond-slip effect at critical regions, the anchorage slip of bars at these regions is analytically derived. Then it is used to modify the uniaxial stress–strain model for steel fibers by assuming that the total strain can be treated as the sum of the bar deformation and anchorage slip, therefore the bond-slip effect is implicitly but simply represented. To validate the proposed element, a series of RC member and structure tests under cyclic loading are simulated. The results indicate that the proposed element can predict cyclic responses of RC structures, and can be used as a reliable tool for analysis of RC structures.
