445-0B - Shear & Torsion-Seismic Shear

Committee Mission: Determine the extent to which provisions for design primarily against shear failure need to be modified for cyclic loads

Goals: 1) Compile and vet data on the response of walls for the NEES shearwall database 2) Identify models currently available to estimate (i) stiffness and (ii) shear strength of walls and columns and compare to wall and column databases 3) Evaluate current provisions for shear failure for members subjected to cyclic loads based on results of Goal 2 4) Propose methods to estimate drift capacity of walls and columns

Chair: Jeffrey Rautenberg
