Abstract:
Three one-tenth scale models of the large-scale reinforced concrete structure tested in Tsukuba, Japan, were built and tested at the University of Illinois, Urbane. The small-scale models were subjected to scaled earthquake motions in one horizontal direction. The paper describes some of the dynamic response measurements and discusses the observed strength of the structures in relation to planar limit analysis.
