Estudio Comparativo de Modelos Numéricos no Lineales Aplicados a Subensambles Viga-Columna

Oscar Möller, Marcelo Rubinstein, Ricardo H. Lorefice, Guillermo Etse


Two numerical models are utilized to predict the response, up to the failure, of typical components of earthquake resistant RlC frames.
One is based on a bidimensional finite element formulation with a non-associated flow rule of plasticity, and the other utilize member elements composed by subelements in series.
They are applied to a beam column subassemblage, comparing the numerical predictions with experimental measurements. The usefulness of each model is noted.
