Abstract

A generalized cyclic steel model characterized by isotropic and kinematic hardening, inelastic buckling in compression and corrosion of rebars in reinforced concrete (RC) structures is presented. The model has been implemented in a fiber code, to perform seismic analyses of RC sections. The model is particularly accurate with respect to experimental cyclic behavior of rebars with buckling in compression when the strain does not exceed 1.5%. Twelve configurations of RC cross sections were selected as case studies for three geometries and different steel arrangements, assumed representative of RC columns or bridge piers (in a suitable scale). Each section was subjected to two groups of cyclic curvature histories representative of severe seismic loads, not far from collapse. Different axial loads and corrosion percentages (no corrosion, moderate, or high) have been selected to perform cyclic parametric analyses. One of the cases was taken from an experimental test on columns, deriving also steel characteristics used in all numerical cases. The results of the comparison among RC sections have been discussed. Numerical results show that the maximum compressive strain for steel rebars is always smaller than 1.5%, therefore the proposed steel model is accurate and represents a valid tool for structural assessment. Corrosion reduces RC section capacity, affecting various rebar mechanical characteristics, in particular buckling behavior.
