Abstract:
This paper is concerned with the response of slabs used to effect the coupling of shearwalls. An experimental investigation of a third scale reinforced concrete shearwall-slab model is described. Based on the results of the model, procedures for the calculating of the initial stiffness, the cracked stiffness, the shear strength, and the flexural strength of the coupling slabs are explained.
