Abstract

This paper presents experimental and numerical analyses of a new type of hybrid lateral load resisting structure. This structure consists of a steel frame with a discretely connected precast concrete infill panel with a window opening. The discrete connections are formed by structural bolts on the column and beam in every corner of the steel frame, confining the precast concrete panel within the steel frame. With the finite element program DIANA, the response of 5 full-scale experiments on one-storey, one-bay, 3 x 3 m infilled frame structures, having different window opening geometries, was simulated. The finite element simulations were performed taking into account non-linear material characteristics and geometrical non-linearity. A comparison between the full-scale experiments and simulations shows that the finite element models enable simulating the elastic and plastic behaviour of the hybrid lateral load resisting infilled frame.
