Seismic Damage Evaluation of Concrete-Encased Steel Frame-Reinforced Concrete Core Tube Buildings Based on Dynamic Characteristics
AbstractTo evaluate damage state and residual resistance of concrete-encased steel frame-reinforced concrete core tube buildings under earthquake actions, a criterion of damage assessment based on dynamic characteristics is proposed in this paper. Dynamic characterization experiments were conducted on a 10-story and 1/5 scaled building model using velocity sensors on each floor, and natural frequencies were obtained based on the measured data. Modal analysis was carried out using a nonlinear finite element program, and the simulation results of the dynamic characteristics agreed well with experimental ones. Then, the damage processes under different seismic wave inputs were revealed based on finite element analysis, and the max story drift angle was chosen to reflect the damage state and to quantify the degree of damage. A criterion of seismic damage assessment is proposed based on the relationship between the quantitative damage value and the dynamic characteristics, in which the higher order modes were considered. Moreover, influencing factors, including earthquake intensity and structural stiffness ratio, were analyzed, and the results indicated that the proposed damage index based on dynamic characteristics can account for the higher-order modes and provides an innovative approach to evaluate the seismic damage.
