Buildings, Vol. 13, Pages 1359: Experimental, Theoretical and Numerical Research Progress on Dynamic Behaviors of RC Structural Members
Buildings doi: 10.3390/buildings13051359
In this paper, research on dynamic behaviors of RC structural members was reviewed using experimental, theoretical and numerical perspectives. First, in a basic overview, measurement methods, main conclusions and current limitations of available dynamic loading tests were presented. Then, theoretical studies on the dynamic constitutive models of RC materials, the dynamic increase factor (DIF) model for concrete and reinforced steel and proposed modified models of dynamic behavior parameters at the structural member level were summarized. Finally, the available modeling approach and method for incorporating dynamic effects in numerical simulations of RC structures were reviewed. Moreover, the work involved a brief introduction to a dynamic hysteretic model established using experimental data, which was designed to provide an alternative approach to the commonly-used DIF method for considering these dynamic effects. This paper, therefore, aimed to provide a valuable reference for experimental studies and numerical simulations on the dynamic behaviors of RC structures&mdash;while also putting forward issues that need to be addressed by future work.
