Abstract
In this paper, modeling approaches describing the hysteretic behavior of re inforced-concrete columns subjected to cyclic deformation reversals are inv estigated. The inelastic flexure and shear response of a reinforced-concret e column subjected to cyclic deformation is evaluated utilizing lumped hyst eretic representations that exhibit efficiency and ease of modeling. The an alytical predictions obtained with the new formulations are compared with e xperimental results from the literature. Comparisons between results with a nd without shear interaction reveal the importance of the flexure-shear int errelationship and the adequacy of the proposed approach in terms of streng th and stiffness predictions.
