Keywords: reinforced concrete; shear strength; shear walls; stiffness; strength degradation. Date: 9/1/ Abstract: Twelve low-aspect-ratio reinforced concrete walls were constructed and tested at the University at Buffalo to develop validated equations for peak shear strength and hysteretic rules for nonlinear response-history analysis.

Twelve large-size, low aspect ratio, rectangular, reinforced concrete shear walls were built and tested at the University at Buffalo.

Low aspect ratio reinforced concrete (RC) shear walls provide the lateral strength and stiffness for many low-rise to medium-rise buildings and nearly all safety-related nuclear structures. Results from a series of experiments designed to measure the stiffness of low-aspect-ratio, reinforced-concrete shear walls subjected reinforced concrete shear walls book simulated seismic inputs on a shake table are reported.

Prepared by the Working Group on the Stiffness of Concrete Shear Wall Structures of the ASCE Dynamic Analysis Committee, this report aims to review the methods used to compute the in-plane stiffness of low aspect ratio reinforced concrete shear.

For buildings constructed with low-aspect-ratio reinforced concrete shear walls, a Stiffness of low-aspect-ratio repair may not be necessary if the earthquake-induced displacement of the wall is less than the displacement associated with peak shear force.

Procedures defined in Appendix A of ACI were found to underestimate the strength of lightly reinforced walls and tended to overestimate the strength of walls with more than times the minimum web reinforcement ratio.

A reasonable lower bound to the shear strength of low-rise walls with minimum web reinforcement was found to be 6 û f' by: @article{osti_, title = {Static and simulated seismic testing of the TRG-7 through shear wall structures}, author = {Farrar, C R and Baker, W E and Dove, R C}, abstractNote = {Results from the static, simulated seismic base excitation, and experimental modal analysis tests performed on the TRG-7 through structures are reported.

This paper is intended to evaluate the seismic performance of a twelve-story reinforced concrete moment-resisting frame structure with shear walls using 3D finite element models according to such seismic design regulations as Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) guideline and seismic building codes including Los Angeles Tall Building Structural Design Council (LATBSDC) by: The values of longitudinal and transverse reinforcement ratio used in the walls were and %, respectively for squat shear walls and and %, respectively for slender shear walls.

The observed failure mode in squat shear wall was by shear and in slender shear wall, it was by : N. Ganesan, P. Indira, P. Seena. Introduction. In seismic design, a displacement-based approach recently has been widely employed instead of a traditional force-based approach in which the deformation of structures is the point of these structures, the effective stiffness of RC coupling beams plays an important role in the seismic performance of the structural walls and the whole structure because it may Cited by: lateral stiffness and high load-carrying capacity, reinforced concrete shear walls are widely used in high-rise struc-tures [1,2].

As is known, based on different height-to-depth ratio, the cantilever shear walls can be categorized as slender walls or squat walls. The slender wall is essen-tially a cantilever, which will experience the largest. The ACI guideline for the shear strength of squat shear walls is based on empirical expressions for the shear transfer capacities of concrete and shear reinforcements originally established for slender beam tests.

The shear transfer capacity of horizontal shear reinforcement is formulated using the 45° truss analogy derived from the Cited by: 1. “Stiffness of Low Rise Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls”, Working Group on Stiffness of Concrete Shear Wall Structures, American Society of Civil Engineers, Appendix A.

Shear walls are part of the lateral force resisting system that carries vertical loads, bending moments about the wall major axis, and shear forces parallel to the wall length.

Reinforced-concrete shear walls, which have high in-plane stiffness, have proven to provide excellent, cost-effective lateral resistance in comparison to other lateral-resisting systems (Cardenas et al.Wyllie et al.Fintel ).

Some of these walls panels are cantilevered from the ground and directly support the roof steelwork. • The core walls vary in thickness from mm to mm. The core walls are typically linked through a series of mm to mm deep reinforced concrete link beams at every level. • These composite link beams typically consist of steel shear plates, or structural steel built-up I-shaped beams, with shear studs embedded in the concrete section.

Large tanks tend to have a low aspect ratio (height to width) and are cylindrical in design with a domed roof. Storage pressures in these tanks are very low, less than 5 psig. The outer walls are made of reinforced concrete and are designed to safely contain the contents of the inner tank in the extremely unlikely event of it developing a leak.
