Performance Estimate for Slender Solid Shear Wall under Rare Earthquakes

Abstract:

Article Preview

An method of calculation the displacement of wall pier in plastic zone under lateral force and axial force is proposed in this paper, which can reflect the failure behavior of wall pier at ultimate state observed from 9 RC slender solid shear wall specimens under reserve cyclic loading, and the contribution of both modes of flexural and shear deformation are considered. The comparison between analytical results and experimental results indicates the effectiveness of the method. By applying the method, performance estimate for shear wall under rare earthquakes can be conducted by engineering designer, dispense with complicated nonlinear analysis.
