Experimental study of corroded RC beams: dissipation and equivalent viscous damping ratio identification

Abstract

Corrosion of steel reinforcement is one of the most common durability issues for reinforced concrete (RC) structures, especially when located in marine areas. The study of the mechanical consequences of this pathology is of great importance to assess their performance. Experimental campaigns have been carried out on corroded structures. So far, assessing quasi-static behavior or predicting the dynamic response of structures have been based exclusively on quasi-static loadings. In particular, the dissipated energy and the damping capacity, which are important features to study when assessing the seismic performance of corroded RC members, are evaluated based on quasi-static loadings. The objective of this study is to characterize these two significant engineering demand parameters (EDP) using both quasi-static and dynamic tests. To reach this goal, an experimental campaign is conducted on large-scale RC beams. The corroded and non-corroded RC beams are subjected to a four-point bending loading and to dynamic loading keeping the same loadings and boundary conditions. The dynamic loading is applied on the specimen by means of the AZALEE shaking table. In this paper, a brief description of the experimental campaign is made. Then, results showing the influence of the corrosion rate on the dissipation capacity of RC structures are exposed. Especially, the consistency between quasi-static and dynamic results is assessed and discussed.
