Cyclic Test of a Coupled Steel Plate Shear Wall using ABAQUS
The “Structural Numerical Research Center” provides numerous numerical models to assist scientists and researchers all over the world. For last 13 years, we have always aimed to improve engineering knowledge and develop the findings. Steel plate shear walls (SPSW) have been used, to a limited extent, as the primary lateral force resisting system in buildings for more than three decades. There have been numerous SPSW research programs in this timeframe in the United States, Canada, and Japan to help foster a better understanding of the system’s behavior, particularly as it relates to earthquake-resistant design.
Hence, modeling of SPSW focusing on cyclic and ductility behavior has always been of special interest to researchers. The main question for prediction the behavior of these structures is; What is the structural yield/ultimate strength? How are the ductility parameters? Indeed, to answer these questions, it is necessary to measure numerous numerical models along with laboratory samples, and one of the most accurate methods is FEM Analysis using Abaqus software.
This ABAQUS tutorial video (Cyclic Test of a Coupled Steel Plate Shear Wall) is based on a laboratory sample. The step-by-step tutorial describes the method which many researchers use to simulate the behavior of such steel structures. After this course, you’ll be able to simulate any type of SPSW (Steel Shear plate wall) using Abaqus and extract the contour of stresses, strains, forces and displacements. You can watch summary of our Abaqus video tutorial below. Thank you in advance for subscribing to our YouTube channel. You can also find more products about steel structures at the link. Keep in mind that to increase your modeling knowledge in Abaqus software, the best reference is the software help, along with the tutorials on our website.
