Experimental Study on the Seismic Behavior of HSW Model with High Shear-Span Ratio
Based on the flexural-shear and press-flexural-shear test of four scale HSW model building with High Shear-Span Ratio, The seismic behavior of the slit and integral HSW are discussed, then the failure characteristics and capacity of HSW under Vertical load and seams are analyzed. The result of experimental study proves that the ductility and the property of energy dissipation of HSW are well; Vertical load could increase the capacity and deformation, decrease the energy dissipation of HSW. And the seams of wall could improve the ductility and the property of energy dissipation of HSW , lower the capacity.
