Behaviour of EMP under shear loadings- SDSS 2010
[en] Expanded Metal ; EMP ; Cyclic Tests
[en] Experimental and theoretical study of expanded metal panels (EMP) has shown that they are useful for seismically retrofitting reinforced concrete moment resisting frames (RC-MRF). Although this product has merit of strength and ductility, it is at present only used for non-structural applications. There is no guidance existing to help the engineers determine the mechanical properties or to indicate in which field of the structures this product can be used. With the aims at providing quantitative data for these purposes and at introducing a simplified model of EMP working in shear, description and comparison of the results of 22 monotonic and cyclic experiments of 4 profiles of EMP in small and large scale is presented. Numerical approach with FINELG, a nonlinear finite element code developed at University of Liege, is used to calibrate and simulate the tests. A good correlation between tests and numerical simulations is observed.
