Abstract:
A five-year research program on Composite and Hybrid Structures as Phase 5 of the U.S.-Japan cooperative Earthquake Research Program was recommended to be initiated in 1993 in both countries. Presented in this paper is a summary of the research program which is based on a number of technical meetings of the U.S. and Japan Planning Groups and a Joint Planning Workshop. Because of diverse and broad scope of the subject area, the research program is organized into the following four groups: New Materials, Elements and Systems; Concrete Filled Tube Column Systems; Reinforced Concrete (RC) and Steel Reinforced Concrete (SRC) Column Systems; and RC/SRC Wall Systems. A theme structure with well selected layout, geometry and design loads for the research is also presented, which provides a common focus for various systems to be studied, and also a common prototype structure from which the components and sub-assemblages are drawn.
