Inelastic Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Coupled Shear Walls by the Transfer Matrix Method

The transfer matrix method is applied to the elasto-plastic analysis of coupled shear walls resting on rigid or flexible foundations. The development of the non-linear formulation follows that of the corresponding linear problem with the load applied incrementally and the material behaviour monitored and updated at each load step. Emphasis is laid on reinforced concrete as a structural material, so that sectional properties are evaluated on the basis of stress-strain curves for each of its constituents. Numerical solutions of examples are presented at the end to demonstrate the accuracy of the proposed technique. I.A. Akintilo and S. Syngellakis
