Paper Title:
Experimental Investigation on Seismic Behaviors of High-Performance Concrete Shear Walls of Rectangular Section
  Abstract

The paper explores the failure mode, failure mechanism and deformation capacity of medium-high and low-rise shear walls. The experimental results from load-tests of 5 high-performance concrete shear walls with 1.5 and 1.0 shear span ratio indicate that the shear walls deformation capacity benefits from several bar rings like a chain along boundary element in plastic hinge zone, showing that shear wall deformation capacity design is reliable to a certain extent, in that the plastic hinge zone often influences the damage level of shear walls. With the damage at different stages, the paper divides the performance of shear wall structure into three kinds: serviceability, life-safety and collapse-prevention. Accordingly, it is proposed that the performance controlling indicators for shear wall structures is composed of storey drift ratio and the rotation of plastic hinge zone, and also provides consult values for each performance level.
