Seismic Performance Study of Concrete Porous Brick Wall

Abstract:

Article Preview

Four constructional columns with concrete porous brick walls were constructed for low cyclic loading test. The damage on the characteristics and strength of the wall, hysteresis curve, ductility and other seismic performance were analyzed. Setting constructional columns in the wall at both ends increase the ultimate strength and improve its deformation, ductility and other properties. Meanwhile the height-wide-ratio of wall, axial pressure and other factors on the shear bearing capacity on the wall have been studied. Based on the shear capacity formula of wall in the Structural Seismic Design Code, considering the contribution of the constructional columns on the shear strength, according to the results, the shear capacity formula of constructional columns with concrete brick walls is presented.
