Abstract:Studies conducted at the University of California at Berkeley on a 1/5th-scale model of a seven-story reinforced concrete frame-walll test structure are summarized in this paper and the results of these studies are evaluated. The degree of correlation between the experimental responses of this reduced-scale model and those of the full-scale model tested in Japan is assessed as is the degree of correlation between analytically predicted and experimental responses. The implications of these results for the states of the art and practice of the seismic resistant design and construction of framewall structural systems are discussed and improvements in the states of the art and practice are recommended.
