Abstract

This article numerically studies the seismic vulnerability of the frame structure made of ultra-high ductile cementitious composites without longitudinal and transverse reinforcement. A non-linear finite element model is established with the help of Open System for Earthquake Engineering Simulation and calibrated by shaking table test results on an ultra-high ductile cementitious composite-RC frame whose seismic vulnerable parts were replaced by ultra-high ductile cementitious composites without steel reinforcement. Subsequently, an analysis on the structural seismic vulnerability is performed on pure ultra-high ductile cementitious composite frame structure based on the incremental dynamic analysis method. Finally, a seismic vulnerability matrix of the ultra-high ductile cementitious composite frame under various structural limit states is obtained from seismic fragility curves. Under the major earthquake of magnitude 7.5, the probability of ultra-high ductile cementitious composite frame structure under basically intact, slight damage, moderate damage, serious damage, and collapse is 14.2%, 48.1%, 31.7%, 5.3%, and 0.7%, respectively. The achieved results also demonstrate that the ultra-high ductile cementitious composite frame can satisfy the objectivity of “No collapsed under major earthquake” at least for major earthquakes of magnitude 8. It is demonstrated that the ultra-high ductile cementitious composite frame satisfies three-level performance objectivity stipulated in GB 50011-2010 and, thus, preliminarily verifying the feasibility for constructing structures just using high-performance concrete.
