Paper Title:
Direct Strut-and-Tie Model for Ultimate Shear Strength of Reinforced Concrete Structural Walls
  Abstract

A direct strut-and-tie model to calculate the ultimate shear strength of structural walls based on an interactive mechanical model (C.Y.Tang et al.) is presented. Two common failure modes, namely, diagonal splitting and concrete crushing, are examined in this paper. Ultimate shear strengths of structural walls are governed by both the transverse tensile stresses perpendicular to the diagonal strut, and the compressive stresses in the diagonal strut. Such proposed model is verified aganist three experimental case studies of structural walls. Generally, predictions by the proposed model are not only accurate and consistent in each case study, but also conservative.
