Abstract:
Presents a conceptual model for the behavior of structural walls subjected to lateral load reversals. The primary feature of the model is a reduction in shear strength with increasing levels of deformation. Measured and calculated data from structural walls are evaluated to determine conditions for which the strength and deformation capacity of a wall may be limited by the residual shear strength.
