Experimental Study on Mechanical Properties of Improved Multi-Grid Composite Wall
Two types of improved multi-grid composite wall called point contact multi-grid composite wall and light-steel skeleton multi-grid composite wall were proposed in this paper. In order to study the mechanical properties of improved multi-grid composite wall, the low-cycle reduplicative loading tests of 1/2 scale improved multi-grid composite wall were carried out. Through the analysis of testing phenomenon and final test results, the main failure patterns and failure processes of the walls were summarized, and the mechanical characteristics of improved multi-grid composite wall were discussed, then the seismic performance including bearing capacity, ductility, and hysteretic characteristics were researched. The experimental foundations were provided for the further theoretical research and application of improved multi-grid composite wall in practical application.
