Abstract

The paper presents the experimental and numerical study of a mild steel replaceable dissipation device. The dissipater is made of a milled-down mild steel bar that is confined by a steel tube filled with either grout or epoxy. The use of a reduced area concentrates yielding and plastic straining over a defined length while the tube prevents buckling. The device has been widely adopted in posttensioned rocking systems, and extensive experimental research was carried out on wall and beam-column subassemblies using this external dissipater. As part of those experimental programs, some component testing was carried out; nevertheless, a more comprehensive study was necessary to cover a wider range of geometric and mechanical parameters. The main objective of this research was to calibrate and suggest design parameters to support the design of the dissipation device. The paper shows a comprehensive experimental program under quasi-static cyclic loading carried out with varying geometrical parameters. This work forms the basis for the development of more refined analytical and numerical models to simulate the behavior of the device. In particular, the onset of the dissipater interaction with the confining tube and its buckling mechanism were targeted. Further numerical simulations made use of a fiber element–based model that was capable of capturing the full range of deformation mechanisms highlighted in the experimental program. Using this model, an extensive parametric analysis was carried out to determine significant design parameters, such as the maximum force in the dissipater and the buckling onset strain. Analytical models were also presented to predict the monotonic behavior of the dissipater and provide calibration of the hysteretic force-displacement rule proposed in the final part of the paper - See more at: http://ascelibrary.org/doi/full/10.1061/(ASCE)ST.1943-541X.0001606#sthash.xyUitnUy.dpuf
