Abstract

IN THIS PAPER, NONLINEAR BEHAVIOR OF STEEL PLATE SHEAR WALL WITH
CORRUGATED PLATE UNDER LATERAL PUSHOVER LOADING IN TOP LEVEL OF
MODELS BY FINITE ELEMENT METHOD HAVE BEEN ANALYTICALLY INVESTIGATED.
THE NUMERICAL ONE STORY FRAMES HAVE BEEN BEAMS AND
COLUMNS AS BOUNDARY ELEMENTS. STEEL PLATE SHEAR WALLS SIMULATED
USING FINITE ELEMENT METHOD, BASED ON THE AVAILABLE EXPERIMENTAL
MODEL IN THE LITERATURE. AFTER CALIBRATION OF THE ANALYTICAL MODELS,
MORE PARAMETERS OF STEEL SHEAR WALL WITH CORRUGATED PLATE SUCH AS
THICKNESS CORRUGATED PLATE, STIFFNESS OF THE BOUNDARY MEMBERS,
CORRUGATION DEPTH IN CORRUGATED PLATES AND CORRUGATION LENGTH
OF INFILL CORRUGATED PLATES ARE INVESTIGATED. THE RESULTS OF THIS
STUDY HAVE DEMONSTRATED THAT IN THE WALL WITH CONSTANT DIMENSIONS,
THE TRAPEZOIDAL PLATS HAVE HIGH-ENERGY DISSIPATION, DUCTILITY,
AND ULTIMATE BEARING THAN SINUSOIDAL WAVES WITH DECREASING
THE STEEL MATERIAL CONSUMPTION.
