Title: Experimental Study of the Behavior
of Reinforced Concrete Coupling Sfabs
Author(s): Joseph Schwaighofer and Michael P. Collins
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 123-127
Keywords: apartment buildings;concrete slabs; cracking [fracturing); flexural strength: high-rise buildings; loads (forces] ; models; reinforced concrete;reinforcing steels; shear strength; shearwalls; stiffness; structural analysis.
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.
