The Analysis of Lateral Displacement Target of Unstiffened Steel Plate Shear Wall Based on the Performance Designing
A typical three-story unstiffened Steel Plate Shear Wall (SPSW) finite element model was established. Systematic parameters analysis of the development and changing process of the lateral stiffness and shear capacity was mainly carried on the middle standard layer. The result shows that the lateral stiffness of thin SPSW has been always in decline and has a higher shear capacity after buckling. According to lots of analysis data and different stages of lateral control targets in the new revised seismic design code for performance designing, the lateral limits of the SPSW were respectively qualified under wind loads and frequent earthquake.The test verification was also proposed to verify the restrictive lateral limits so as to supply a scientific basis for the preparation of SPSW design method.
