Seismic Behavior Study of External Wall Panels in Steel Frames
The shaking table test of a full-scale steel frame structure with ALC external wall panels is performed in this paper. Based on the experimental results, the seismic behaviors of ALC external walls and joints are studied, such as the destruction properties of ALC external walls and joints and the effects of external walls on the dynamic properties of steel frame. Several useful conclusions and suggestions are presented in the paper.
