[en] Expanded Metal is a second product made from metal sheet by first cuttings, cold-drawing, and finally by being
flattened. A research is under way at University of Liege with the aims at determining the mechanical properties of this
type of material under seismic excitations. In view of their application to building seismic retrofitting and upgrading, three
approaches: analytical models, numerical simulations and experimental investigations, have been used to characterize the
mechanic behavior of expanded metal sheets which are monotonically and cyclically loaded in shear. Nonlinear numerical
simulations and experimental tests are used to determine the hysteretic behavior of expanded metal shear panels (EMSP),
and an analytical model is then proposed, with the aims of using that to study the influence of such EMSP when they are
used to retrofit and upgrade reinforced concrete moment resisting frames (RC-MRF).
Many RC-MRF are then designed in two cases: (1) in accordance with only Eurocode 2 and (2) in accordance with both
Eurocode 2 and Eurocode 8. Capacities of such designed structures are evaluated by using nonlinear static analysis
(Pushover) and nonlinear time history analysis under different types of soils and ground motions. The efficiency of using
EMSP is evaluated in terms of strength, stiffness and energy dissipation. Additionally, with the presence of EMSP, some
unfavorable behavior of RC-MRF under seismic action such as soft story mechanism can be prevented.
