This paper studies the influence of the shear studs distribution, in terms of local and global effects, on the behavior of dissipative hybrid Steel frames with Reinforced Concrete infill Walls (SRCWs). Dissipative SRCWs have been recently proposed as seismic resistant systems, capable of coupling the high stiffness of reinforced concrete walls with the advantages of dissipative systems, in which the energy dissipation takes place in localized and replaceable elements. However, experimental tests showed that the global behavior and the failure mechanism of such systems are strongly influenced by the shear studs distribution along the steel frame—reinforce concrete wall interface. In this paper, this issue is studied through suitable numerical models, calibrated on the base of the available experimental results. Several modeling options and strategies are considered and their influence on the final results has been assessed. The resulting numerical model is used to analyze the mechanical behavior of such system and to perform parametric analyses varying the shear studs distribution. The results obtained help the understanding of the mechanical behavior and of the resisting mechanisms activated on the studied system, supplying relevant information for the development of more accurate design rules.
