Shear Performance of Composite Steel Plate Shear Walls with Trilateral Constrained by Experimental Study
An experimental study was performed to investigate the structural capacity of composite steel plate walls with trilateral constrained. Six one-third-scale models of one-story prototype walls with composite steel plate shear walls were tested. The parameters for this test were the width-thickness ratio of infill steel plates and the strength of compound precast plate. Regardless of the inﬁll plate design, the steel plate wall specimens exhibited excellent strength, deformation capacity. The design of boundary connection method is important to small width-thickness ratio of infill plates. Bolt sliding between the infill steel plates and boundary frame would decrease initial stiffness and shear strength of the steel plate shear walls. And more, this result indicates that the initial stiffness and shear strength would be improved highly with compound precast plate as resistant-lateral of infill steel plate. But the precast plate must be have sufficient strengh in design.
