Committee Mission: To develop and report information on the response of members subjected to seismic shear.
Goals: 1. Maintain and update NEES shearwall database
2. Evaluate current provisions for shear failure for columns subjected to cyclic loads based on test data available in in ACI 369 databases
3. Identify and evaluate models currently available for stiffness and shear strength of walls and columns subjected to cyclic loads
4. Sponsor technical sessions related to seismic shear
