Collapse Resistance Model and Deformation Mechanism of Shear Wall Replacement
Structural elements can be damaged or defective due to man-made and natural disasters, which will result in structural resistance below the design value. Component replacement can effectively improve the safety of the structure and does not affect its later use. However, this construction process must dismantle defective components. If the process is not properly operated, it will cause progressive collapse of the structure. There are few studies on progressive collapse resistance based on field tests. In this paper, the alternate load path method is used to study the deformation mechanism of reinforced concrete shear wall structures when partial members fail. The maximum vertical displacement and strain of the beam end near the failure walls are obtained, and load transfer laws are analyzed. Based on the component replacement construction of a high-rise shear wall structure, the progressive collapse resistance mechanism of the shear wall structure is verified, which provides theoretical guidance for component replacement construction.
