This paper deals with the seismic response assessment of a steel-concrete moment-resisting frame (MRF) equipped with special dissipative replaceable components (DRCs): the dissipative replaceable beam splices (DRBeS), which combine large energy dissipation with ease of replacement. The evaluation of the full potential of DRBeS requires a system-level investigation, that is, a six-story MRF, whereby the hysteretic effects of beam splices partial-strength joints are considered on the global response of the structural system.

Therefore, to appreciate the performance of the partial-strength MRF at damage limitation (DL), significant damage (SD) and near collapse (NC) within the performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE) approach, HSs were carried out. In such instances, the ground floor was physically tested at full scale in the laboratory and the remainder of the structure was numerically simulated. Relevant results showed that the DRBeS were capable of dissipating a significant amount of hysteretic energy and of protecting the non-dissipative parts of partial-strength joints and the overall structure with an ease of replacement.

Abstract

This paper deals with the seismic response assessment of a steel-concrete moment-resisting frame (MRF) equipped with special dissipative replaceable components (DRCs): the dissipative replaceable beam splices (DRBeS), which combine large energy dissipation with ease of replacement. The evaluation of the full potential of DRBeS requires a system-level investigation, that is, a six-story MRF, whereby the hysteretic effects of beam splices partial-strength joints are considered on the global response of the structural system. Therefore, an OpenSees finite element (FE) frame model, based on previous experimental campaigns with cyclic displacements on partial-strength joints, and a Matlab model validated on OpenSees, were used for a more complex experimental activity via hybrid simulation (HS). The aim of the simulations was twofold: (i) to increase knowledge of the non-linear behaviour of steel-concrete composite partial-strength MRFs; and (ii) to study the effectiveness of the DRBeS components for increasing the recovery of functionality after a major seismic event. Therefore, to appreciate the performance of the partial-strength MRF at damage limitation (DL), significant damage (SD) and near collapse (NC) within the performance-based earthquake engineering (PBEE) approach, HSs were carried out. In such instances, the ground floor was physically tested at full scale in the laboratory and the remainder of the structure was numerically simulated. Relevant results showed that the DRBeS were capable of dissipating a significant amount of hysteretic energy and of protecting the non-dissipative parts of partial-strength joints and the overall structure with an ease of replacement.
