The objective of this study is to investigate capability of the finite element analysis code; DIANA, for simulating elasto-plastic behavior of shear walls made of the ductile fiber reinforced cementitious composites (DFRCC) subjected to monotonic or cyclic lateral loading. To model ductile material properties of DFRCC, the fracture mechanics parameters were evaluated and incorporated into the finite element material models. Then, the shear wall specimens were analyzed by the FE code and applicability of the code was verified through the comparison between the test and analytical results.
