Abstract:
This paper consists of three kinds of studies . One is static tests on three story shear wall assemblies to investigate the seismic behavior, particularly deformation performance and deformation mechanism, of flexural type shear walls. Second is static tests on flexural type beam-column asseniblies designed by either U.S. design practice or Japanese design practice . Third is correlation study on shaking table tests and pseudo dynamic tests developed for full scale seven story R/C building test. Major conclusions derived from these studies are a s follows; ( i ) Stretch of the boundary column under tension of the first story controlled the over all behavior of flexural type shear walls, ( i i ) The effect of slab reinforcements on bending capacity of beams was greatly remarkable, which caused pinching phenomena in a load vs. driftrelation while top of the beam was under tension, and (iii) Satisfactory correlation between shaking table tests and pseudo dynamic tests was obtained after the restoring force characteristics with the effects of strain rate and stress relaxation was appropriately evaluated.
