Behaviour of Reinforced Concrete Dual Structural System: Strength, Deformation Characteristics, and Failure Mechanism

Govindan Nandini Devi

Abstract—This paper presented an experimental investigation on the behaviour of a quarter-sized three bay five storey reinforced concrete dual structural system subjected to lateral load and their performance were assessed based on load carrying capacity, stiffness, ductility and energy dissipation capacity. The study covered the entire loading range from the initial elastic stage until the ultimate failure stage. Analytical results were obtained using finite element analysis software ANSYS for monotonic loading and push over analysis using SAP2000Nonlinear. Analytical results were compared with experimental results and concluded.

Index Terms—Dual system, ductility, energy dissipation, load carrying capacity, lateral load, stiffness
