Experimental Study on Direct Performance-Based Behaviour of High-Performance Concrete Shear Walls

Abstract:

Article Preview

Based on the experimental results of 5 high-performance concrete shear walls, the failure mode, failure mechanism and deformation capacity of shear walls are studied. The new reinforcement method of several bar rings like a chain along boundary element in plastic hinge zone is verified to improve the deformation capacity of shear walls effectively, it indicates that the rotation of plastic hinge zone is related to the damage level of shear walls well. According to the damage level, the storey drift ratio and the rotation of plastic hinge zone are both used as the performance controlling indicators of shear wall structures.
