Author(s): M. Yamada, H. Kawamura, and K. Katagihara
Publication: Symposium Paper
Appears on pages(s): 559-578
Keywords: beams (supports); bending moments; columns (supports); concrete panels; cracking (fracturing); deformation; earthquakes; flexural strength; frames; modulus of elasticity; openings; reinforced concrete; shear strength; shear walls; spalling; stiffness
The resistance, deformation and fracture mechanics of reinforced concrete shear walls with openings are investigated experimentally as well as analytically, not only in elastic but also in cracked, ultimate and even post-ultimate states.
