Title: Ductility in Reinforced Concrete Shear Walls
Author(s): C.M. Allen, L.G. Jaeger, V.C. Fenton
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 97-118
Keywords: axial loads; building codes; capacity; construction joints; cracking (fracturing); deflection; deformation; ductility; earthquake resistant structures; flexural strength; foundations; high rise buildings; hinges (structural); lateral pressure; moments
Abstract:This paper presents a study of the behavior and design of ductile shear walls, limiting the study to those walls which behave as flexural members, the ductility of flexural members having been generally proved in tests and in practice in seismic regions. . .This paper is intended as a design aid for structural designers who are considering the use of shear walls in seismic regions.
