Shape Optimization of Joints of Steel-Framed Diaphragm Wall
Shape optimization system of the joints of the steel-framed diaphragm wall (abbreviated as steel diaphragm wall) is discussed. The optimization problem is formulated as the minimum cost...

Evaluation and Remediation of Construction Defects in Tilt Wall Panels
Both the surface appearance and structural safety were of concern to the Owner of a five year old warehouse structure that was experiencing delamination of tilt-up wall panels. Delamination...

Seismic Resistant Low-Cost Masonry Buildings in Peru
Future housing in developing countries will be provided mainly in medium rise, four to six stories, bearing wall masonry buildings. This paper reports on the rationality behind this political...

Panel-Sheathed Shear Walls — Past and Future
In order for a building to resist the lateral forces caused by wind or earthquake, it is necessary that the building include a lateral force resisting system. When the walls are designed...

A Structural Analysis Model for Timber Shear Walls
A numerical modelling procedure for the non-linear analysis of timber shear walls is presented. The model includes the non-linear behavior of the connectors between the sheathing and framing,...

Macroscopic Models for R/C Shear Walls
In this paper, the discussion is mainly focused on four macroscopic models, recently proposed by Japanese researchers, for predicting ultimate strength of reinforced concrete (R/C) shear...

Verification of Macroscopic Models for R/C Walls
Macroscopic models utilized in a plastic analysis for predicting the ultimate strength of reinforced concrete members have been developed in Japan as well as in Europe. In the JCI committee,...

Verification of Macroscopic Models or RC Walls by FEM
Several macroscopic models based on the limit analysis have been proposed for obtaining the ultimate strength of reinforced concrete shear walls in Japan. When using these models, it is...

Parametric Analyses of RC Shear Walls by FEM
In this paper, nonlinear behavior of reinforced concrete shear walls is studied by using the finite element analysis. We applied numerical analyses to a wide range of parameters, such...

Inelastic Performance of Single-Story Masonry Shear Walls
Twenty-two story-height reinforced masonry shear walls have been tested to examine the influence of the applied axial stress, and the amount of vertical and horizontal reinforcement on...

In-Plane Behavior of Concrete Masonry Coupled Walls
To study the in-plane seismic resistance of multi-story masonry coupled walls, 6 full-scale reinforced masonry specimens, each two stories high, are being constructed and tested in the...

Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis of Experiments on Two-Story Reinforced Masonry Shear Walls
Nonlinear, static finite element analyses are being used for correlation with experiments conducted on one-story reinforced masonry shear walls, and for the prediction of and correlation...

Seismic Evaluation of a Tall Reinforced Concrete Frame Building
Accelerations at basement, fifth and tenth floor levels of a reinforced concrete apartment building were recorded during the October 1st, 1987 Whittier-Narrows earthquake. These accelerations...

Architectural Configurations in Vina del Mar
This paper identifies the architectural characteristics of 121 reinforced concrete buildings in Vina del Mar. These characteristics are related to the damage statistics for the building...

Comparison of Slitted and Non-Slitted R. C. Shear Walls With Boundary Elements Under Horizontal Forces
This paper compares the differences of aseismic behaviours between slitted and non-slitted shear walls under horizontal forces. There are 5 specimens for slitted shear walls and another...

Jet Grouting to Construct a Soilcrete Wall Using a Twin Stem System
An existing coal loading pier located in Norfolk, Virginia was completed in 1961 for the purpose of loading ocean going ships. It was determined that dredging adjacent to the pier would...
