What is a resilient steel wall

What is a Resilient Steel Wall?

  • Combines benefits of Steel Plate Shear Walls (SPSWs) with self-centering technologies

  • SPSW provides:

    • Ease of construction

    • High strength and initial stiffness

    • Ductility

    • Yielding over many stories

    • Replaceable energy dissipation elements (steel plates)

  • Post-Tensioned (PT) Connection provides:

    • Self-centering capabilities

    • Quick return to occupancy after earthquake

  • Idealized hysteretic behavior of SPSW with simple HBE-to-VBE connections:

Pt connection behavior

PT Connection Behavior

  • Provides self-centering capabilities

    • Connection is allowed to rock about its flanges

    • PT remains elastic to provide recentering force

  • Requires some energy dissipation

    • Examples from previous research:

      • Yielding angles (Garlock, 2002)

      • Friction devices (Iyama et al., 2009; Kim and Christopoulos, 2008)

    Prototype building designs

    Prototype Building Designs

    • Based on 3- and 9-story SAC buildings in LA

    • Vary number of R-SPSW bays in building

    • 2 design types:

      • Plates designed for V50/50

      • Plates designed for V10/50/R


    Analytical model

    Analytical Model

    • Nonlinear model in OpenSees

    • SPSW modeled using strip method:

    • Tension-only strips with pinched hysteresis

    • Strips oriented in direction of tension field

    Dynamic analyses

    Dynamic Analyses

    • Each model subjected to 60 LA SAC ground motions representing 3 seismic hazard levels

      • 50% in 50 year

      • 10% in 50 year

      • 2% in 50 year

    • Used OpenSeesMP to run ground motions in parallel on TeraGrid machines

    Processor = 0

    Processor = 1

    R-SPSW model

    Processor = n-1

    Response history results

    Response History Results

    • Example of Response during 2% in 50 year EQ

      • System Response

    • Connection Response


    Response history results1

    Response History Results

    • Statistical results from all 60 ground motions

    • Performance Objectives:

      • No plate repair (Story drift < 0.5%) in 50/50

        (this example designed using V10/50/R; plates not explicitly designed to remain elastic)

      • Recentering (Residual Drift < 0.2%) in 10/50

      • Story drift < 2.0% in 10/50 (represents DBE)

      • Limited PT, HBE, and VBE yielding in 2/50

    All performance objectives met !!!


    Comparing designs

    Comparing Designs

    R-SPSW designed using V50/50

    R-SPSW designed using V10/50/R

    Plates designed using reduced “DBE” forces

    • Plates designed to remain elastic in 50% in 50 year EQ

    • Larger plate thicknesses & frame members

    • Improved response

      • Recentering at all hazard levels

      • Smaller peak drifts


    Conclusions

    Conclusions

    • Preliminary design procedure developed for R-SPSW

    • Dynamic analyses show R-SPSW can meet proposed performance objectives

      • including recentering in 10% in 50 year EQ

    • Highly nonlinear model  significant computational effort

    • Use of TeraGrid resources reduced computational time by more than 90%

    • Experimental studies on R-SPSW currently taking place
